Disruptive Film Vol. 1: Everyday Resistance to Power

Loading...
With this collection, curators Ernest Larson and Sherry Millner have successfully established a new history of film as political resistance. Vol. 1 is made up of four distinct programs with 26 short-form experimental non-fiction films. These radical global narratives span from 1914 up to the early 21st century and truly represent the diversity in approaches to documentary filmmaking. The collection has been put together for both political and educational purposes, to offer film and media makers and scholars a chance to review unaccountably under-appreciated works of film, video, animation--from France to Chiapas, from Serbia to China, to Nigeria--works that propose various strategies of resistance to power.

Hearts Are Trump Again

Loading...
"By way of lush formal and associative shifts, Hearts Are Trump Again evokes the ever-present tension between seemingly polarized states of experience. Desire and repulsion; freedom and constraint; pain and pleasure all find articulation in images of ferocious dogs and mock conversations about childbearing. Tonally complex and viscerally rich, Hearts Are Trump Again is a lyrical exploration of emotional weather." -- Video Data Bank Website.
