Screening: Black Radical Imagination, Fugitive Trajectories
  • Black Radical Imagination is an international touring program of experimental short films emphasizing new stories from within the African diaspora. This year’s screening, programmed by Jheanelle Brown and Darol Olu Kae, explores death and grief, language and memory, and family and notions of home, as ways to carve out new inroads to self-actualization and freedom. The films collectively pose the questions: What does it mean to exist in relation to violence? How does the past live through the present in both beautiful and terrible ways? And how can we begin to imagine Black life beyond the structuring modalities of resistance and survival?

    MCA Screenings feature experimental works of contemporary cinema and are organized by Assistant Curator of Public Programs Christy LeMaster. This event is Pick 2 eligible.
