In this issue:

Haley Morris-Cafiero is this issue’s featured photographer, presenting work from her series Wait Watchers, which makes visible everyday hostilities directed at fat and other non-normative bodies in public. This interview is conducted by Jackie Wykes.

Sarah Kember presents an anonymous open letter about the discovery of life on Mars.

Katie Weldon interviews Mandi Morgan, a Vancouver-native and NFB/ONF employee in Montréal, with hopes of answering questions about the decline in viewership, and the best way to support Canadian filmmakers.

Moynan King considers a reading of Valerie Solanas’s SCUM Manifesto as a form of revenge – a performative speech act that reveals, and retaliates against, its genesis in misogynistic polemics throughout history.

Regular NMP contributor, Andrea Zeffiro, interviews Steph Ceraso about her ongoing audio project archiving the lived experiences of graduate student life.

Our next theme is USED, out September 1, 2013.
