Our film, video, and media streaming series begins in Fall 2020. Curated by María Fernandez Pello and Craig Campbell. We aim to share films and media that challenge conventions of documentary film production and expand our sense of what is possible in ethnographic acts of remediation.

This is a poster-image announcing the first film cycle: Ghosts, memory, history.

1. Ghosts, Memory, History

Our first cycle of films is titled Ghosts, Memory, History in response to films by Lois Patiño, Linda Paganelli, and Alan Klima. The first two documentaries expand our sense of temporal imaginaries and intangible presence through their experiments with form. The third film, Alan Klima’s Ghosts and Numbers animates the uncanny with the director’s attention to the haunting materialities of money.
