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.
