Filmforum: The Familiar Unknown: Mysticism in the Present Future


Followed by Q&A with the artists

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Lauren Halsey: we still here, there, this program features films and videos that engage with the mysterious, mystical, and absurd as a way to create possibility from within the constraints of everyday life. Through the use of archival footage, experimental narrative elements, and musically-infused rituals of transformation and transcendence, these works by Amir George, Mike Henderson, and dana washington powerfully meditate on the power of culture in relation to the self and community.
