Christopher Harris Retrospective: Poetics and Politics of Form


Where: Cine Humberto MauroDate: 01/09/2019Showtime: 17h00*Followed by discussion with Christhoper Harris*Past event

A performer lip-syncs to archival audio featuring the voice of author and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston as she describes her method of documenting African American folk songs in Florida. The flickering images were produced with a hand-cranked Bolex so that the lip-synch is deliberately erratic and the rear-projected, grainy, looped images of Masai tribesmen and women, recycled from an educational film, become increasingly abstract as the audio transforms into an incantation.
