Exhalations: Films by Kalpana Subramanian – FREE / Suggested Donation
Friday, February 24, 2023, 7 pm ET
In-person @ Journey’s End Refugee Services, and online
Free or suggested donation
Subramanian has created a remarkable body of work spanning films, media art, children’s books, scholarship, and curatorial work. Her recent work is invested in a cinema of breath: a framework for radical cinema grounded in intersectional-feminist and decolonial thought, alternative approaches to embodiment, and what Achille Mmbembe calls “the universal right to breathe.” This solo screening by the celebrated film and media practitioner brings together recent and older short films from 2002 to the present day, including the entirety of her Light Mediated series. The filmmaker will be present for a Q&A following the screening.
This online and event will take place in the theater of Journey’s End Refugee Services, located at the 5th floor of Tri-Main Center. Please note that the online event will only have the films, not the Q&A with the artist. The online films will be available for 24 hours. Squeaky Wheel members will receive extended access for 72 hours.
