The final screening of 2013 for the black filmmaker collective,
Black Radical Imagination, will take
place this coming Sunday in
Programmed by Chicago based filmmaker Amir George and L.A. based curator Erin Christovale, the goal of Black Radical Imagination, according to
both of them, is “to invoke a futurist aesthetic of the black image on screen. The
visual pieces delve into the worlds of video art, film animation, narrative
storytelling, and new media. Each artist contributes their own vision of a free
changing world in a postmodern society.”
The films that will be screened at the Boston screening, which
will present “a vision of a free-changing world in a post-modern society through
focused observations that explore the state of black culture” are:
by Cristina De Middel (Spain, 2012), Reifying Desire 2 by Jacolby Satterwhite
(US, 2012), Mae’s Journal by Amir George (US, 2012) Split Ends, I Feel
Wonderful by Akosua Adoma Owusu (US, 2012) The Changing Same by Cauleen Smith (US,
2001) Quiescence Interrupted… Adumbrate by Anansi Knowbody (US, 2013)
and Golden Chain by Adebukola Bodunrin
& Ezra Clayton Daniels (US, 2013).
The screenings, which is being co-presented by the American Studies program at Tufts University, will take place at Museum of Fine Arts Boston in the Alfond Auditorium, starting at 2PM, this coming Sunday November 10th.
After the screening, there will be a discussion with
curators Christovale and George, with SMFA
student Ximena Izquierdo Ugaz, and
filmmaker Adebukola Bodunrin.
