100 Years of Dada: Dada in Dialogue in the Present
Thu, Mar 23 7:30 PM (73 min)

A short film program curated by John Canciani and Aline Juchler (Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur) The selection contains clusters with dialogues between the original Dadaist films and their contemporary counterparts. Dada is everything and nothing; Dada is dead; Dada is alive; Dada is a well-meaning contradiction. It was politically in reaction to current events and sometimes playfully in search of new art forms. With the newer works screening in response to the original Dada films, we ask whether contemporary filmmakers are able to evoke the spirit of Dada: Do their films simply exhibit formal similarities or do they come from kindred spirits? The program presents historic films by Marcel Duchamp and René Clair alongside contemporary work by filmmakers such as Réka Bucsi and Mirai Mizue.

A Narrative Film
 
 (8 min)

The most narrative narrative never narrated. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It is at once both a three-act assault on the conceit of the traditional narrative, and also perhaps, a futile attempt to escape the narrative impulse of cinema.

A Poem of Glass and Steel
 
 (8 min)
Primarily known for being the largest collection of Mies Van Der Rohe designed homes in the world, Detroit's Lafayette Park is usually the subject of Architectural interest, leaving little said about its socioeconomic climate. This project narrates the experience of living in an iconic and rapidly changing neighborhood. The area has been influenced by a grim past and faces an uncertain future, making this footage a valuable documentation of a fragile moment in time. As a result, "A Poem of Glass and Steel" questions the worth and sustainability of beauty and community.

A Prerequisite for Rebellion
Fri, Mar 24 9:15 PM (78 min)

There is trauma for a Black body to exist within a colonized space. In this sequence of short films, we see the different ways this trauma manifests. How the trauma eats away at the Black body mentally, physically and emotionally. Throughout the series of shorts we see the attempts to disrupt and dismantle white supremacy - a crucial act, now more than ever. The program is curated by Ingrid LaFleur. LaFleur is a cultural producer, arts advocate, and founder of AFROTOPIA. She has developed and organized art exhibitions nationally and internationally with a curatorial focus on Afrofuturism. As guest curator at the Detroit Film Theatre, LaFleur organizes the Afrofuturism Film Series.
