Program 3 will feature artists Ephraim Asili, Dianna Barrie, Akosua Adoma Owusu, Paige Taul, and Richard Tuohy in attendance.


“Join us for films on diaspora, migration, exodus, resistance, the flows of traffic, bodies, air, water, and culture. The self-organizing motor traffic of the streets of Jakarta teems. Bahamian Junkanoo costumes and rhythms rake ‘n’ scrape. Voices and images of street art, poetics of resistance. The spirit of a dreaming Diana Ross enacts visions of Mahogany while Sly the Family Stone hit the tarmac.”

“Films of wander, drift, and encounter with the world give way to abstracted spaces and fragmentary envisionings of bodies. Self-portraiture gives way to other-portraiture, cinematic revisioning and enactment of feminist art actions. Experiences forgotten by the mind are carried by the body. Aches may linger. Is it uncommon to relive events in which your body played no part?”
— San Francisco Cinematheque

“It’s something pretending to be something else. It starts one brick at a time. The films in this program collide the abstract with the concrete and the mighty concrete crumbles. Astrology meets machinery. Alchemy meets astronomy and space noises bloom. Lines are drawn, erased, blurred, and drawn again.”
— San Francisco Cinematheque

Simon Liu and Warren Ng, Highview, 2017 (still)

Program 6 will feature artists Simon Liu and Warren Ng in attendance.


“Shutter-induced visions confound, overreach, and dissipate. Films as overflowing boxes of coagulated speed, color, and contrast. Confusion in slow motion; eclipses and occlusions. The mechanisms of memory evoke the future. Time moves in all directions (and sometimes not at all). Program features an extended and extrapolated portrait of musician Thom AJ. MadsoN (Assajan Jakgawan). Live quad-projection (in 16mm) by Simon Liu + live sound by Warren Ng (This Invitation) ring in our CROSSROADS Saturday night.”
