Five Videomakers from Mexico City


The Nightingale Cinema, 1084 N. Milwaukee
Friday, August 19th, 7:30 pm, $7-10

Fire After the Sun
presents the work of five videomakers from Mexico City addressing the legacy of delusionment/disillusionment after history, anecdotes around collective catastrophes, and deconstructions of national symbols.

The program creates a  dialogue between the antagonistic perspectives and conceptual coincidences between the different works. Originally they were all created as video installations. Thus they challenge the mono channel projection by creating non-linear narratives, departing from fiction and nonfiction film strategies through selected media archeologies and techniques.
