FLAHERTY NYC, PROG. 1: VIOLENT CIVILIZATION

This screening is part of: FLAHERTY NYC: AFTERMATH

Film Notes

Co-presented with UnionDocs. Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys in person, moderated by Dessane Lopez Cassell.

“Violent Civilization” considers the settler-colonial state as living, breathing, and thoroughly contemporary matter. Eschewing the tendency to historicize the oppression and displacement of indigenous communities in the United States, the films presented here by Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil, and Jackson Polys both re-imagine and re-contextualize contemporary native identity. Based on the ancient Anishinaabe Seven Fires Prophecy which both predates and predicts the arrival of Europeans, INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./] blends documentary, narrative, and experimental elements to explore the resonance of the prophecy through generations in their specific Ojibway community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Reflecting on the innate violence of museum archives and the relegation of human beings to artifacts, THE VIOLENCE OF A CIVILIZATION WITHOUT SECRETS considers the case – and consequences – of the “discovery” of the “Kennewick Man,” a prehistoric Paleo-American man whose remains were found in Kennewick, Washington, in 1996.
