Cristiana Miranda, About something that concern us all/Sobre aquilo que nos diz respeito, 2016


Program 6: at the foot of a great monument (this ain’t no storybook)

Sunday, May 21, 2017


Lush cinematic lyricism as expansive anti-ethnography; the world breathes in from outside the frame. Realist portraiture as poetry. The program includes eight films on migration, diaspora, rootedness, ritual, cultural/familial bonding, and estrangement, including a view of a reenacted exorcism, presented through a reclaimed colonialist lens; the heroic and traumatic legacies and histories of slavery and resistance in Jamaica and Brazil; an intimate look at life, labor, location, and family in the American South; familial estrangement in Los Angeles; and a moving portrait of Chemehuevi/Anishinaabe poet Diane Burns.
