Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA Presents Geography of the Body of the World


In Person: Brigid McCaffrey

This program comprises four films that use the poetic as a means to investigate the real. Bruce Baillie’s abstract elegy Mass for the Dakota Sioux (1964) asks, how do we make images after a catastrophe? Sky Hopinka’s Jáaji Approximately (2015) uses audio recordings, lyrical camera work, and visual layering to reframe history. Brigid McCaffrey will be present to screen and discuss two of her films: Paradise Springs (2013), a portrait of geologist Ren Lallatin and her intimate relationship with the land, and a new work about the same subject.
