The final screening of 2013 for the black filmmaker collective, Black Radical Imagination, will take place this coming Sunday in Boston.
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:
Afronauts 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.
