Program 9: staring at the sun (we bite the shadow)

Part of CROSSROADS 2018

Program 9 will feature representatives of Colectivo los ingrávidos in attendance.

“Colectivo los ingrávidos’ Sun Quartet is a solar composition in four movements, a political composition in four natural elements addressing the 2014 disappearance of forty-three students of Iguala, including ruminations on the prelude and aftermath of this devastating and galvanizing national event; a perceptive experience of the current Mexican war and an assertive series of intensely visual cine-poems. CROSSROADS Program 9 includes the Quartet’s concluding three parts (NOTE that The Sun Quartet, part 1 opens CROSSROADS on June 8) as well as films of dark tropical visions, appropriated fútbol mascots and the looming specter of Bitcoin.”
