FLAHERTY NYC PRESENTS: TRANSFORMING PROVOCATIONS
January 19 – March 29
TRANSFORMING PROVOCATIONS rallies moving image media from a wide array of sources to contemplate the divergent meanings embedded in transition. What does it mean to move from one psychic condition to another, from one bodily identity to another, from one site to another? What is the phenomenological effect of cinematic and poetic juxtapositions? How do liminal states engage the intersectionality that both divides and connects citizens and those who reside beyond the borders of citizenship? These programs celebrate the short film format, leveraging cumulative insights gained through the entanglements between works. They offer multiple means to imagine a future in the face of geologic and political transformations that threaten to profoundly alter our ways of being.
Programmed by Lana Lin and Cauleen Smith.
