It was like magic. Jim Hubbard gave a group of Native American youths cameras, and suddenly everything seemed possible. With the push of a button, they could capture the things they found beautiful or funny or truthful. Those simple point-and-shoot cameras put a whole world in their hands. The photographs they took make up "Shooting Back From the Reservation: Another Dimension" (New Press).

"IF you're a political junkie" -- especially one from Hollywood -- "this was almost as good as Oscar night," wrote Tina Daunt about the party in New York where guests doled out $15,000 apiece to attend Bill Clinton's Global Aid Initiative and mix with some of the world's most rich and powerful ["A Soiree With a Serious Agenda," Sept. 22]. There is a chasm as deep and as wide as the Pacific Ocean between that party and the grim reality of millions living in wretched conditions. True, it was a feel-good event that raised funds to help the distressed of the world.

Do children need creative outlets? Is it wise for policy makers who have to make budget cuts in elementary and secondary schools to think first of programs that stress creativity, such as music and art? That those questions deserve an emphatic "yes" and "no" is clearly proved by "Shooting Back: Photography by Homeless Children in Washington, D.C," a moving half-hour documentary airing at 11:30 tonight on KCET Channel 28.

"A Queer Kind of Film: Selections From the First Lesbian and Gay Experimental Film Festival" will screen in two parts, tonight and next Monday night, at 8 at the Filmforum at LACE, 1804 Industrial St. As it turns out, the operative word is actually experimental rather than gay ; some of the films are of a personal intensity and vision that goes beyond gender or sexual orientation.

The Times article ("Child Porn Fight Focuses on 2 Photographers' Books," March 8) gives the wrong impression by lumping together the two photographers under attack, Jock Sturges and David Hamilton. The article creates the impression their work is similar when it is not. Sturges knows the people he photographs (boys and girls, men and women) as close friends and confidants. His models are, for the most part, naturalists (nudists, if you prefer), as is the photographer. The subjects are sans clothing before and after, as well as during the making of their portrait.

The idea seems so simple, the results so complex. In the early 1980s, a photojournalist is assigned to document the homeless problem in Washington, D.C. Jim Hubbard, then of United Press International, decides the best way to see life in the shelters is to hand over the camera to homeless youngsters. The focus of their labors is featured Monday night on PBS' "Shooting Back: Photography by Homeless Children."

"Don't hate. Congratulate." This climactic rap is one of the only quotable passages from "Black Stuff," which ends its Highways engagement Sunday. The impressive collaboration between performance artists LeVan D. Hawkins and Alexander Thomas spares no sensitivities in its caustic satirical study of the African American experience from the inside out. Festive anarchy attends "Black Stuff" from the outside in.
