STORIES OF be/LONGING
A special screening + communing of Black art films featuring:
Adama Delphine Fawundu
Crystal Z Campbell
Presented by Black Cinema Collective and Wa Na Wari
Organized by Berette S Macaulay
The imaginative survivance
of settler colonial causation,
of generational displacement,
seems a perennial r(e)volutionary act of co-creation throughout the Black diaspora.
Through culture-making, dream-scaping, linguistic coding, and embodied rituals of kinship that defy erasure across time, space, and circumstance, there are life-affirming rootings that remove the question of be/longing, and instead – perform it.
While we course-correct histories, how do we sustain our ancestral memories with witnessing and wonderment to cultivate new futures?
When considering the role of caretakers and storytellers, how do we nourish indigenous and diasporic kinfolk, and the earth?
How do we re-figure our co-existent “right to rights”, and our right to belong?
The works of our guest artists invite us to question what we know, and further what we remember, as thriving survivors offering a/new home to one another.
