This series includes eight films made between 2013 and 2018 that investigate the photographic image. Found thrift store images and rediscovered family photographs are forensically examined, reimagined, reframed, unmoored, and re-revealed in all of their documentary truth and fiction. With Janie Geiser in person!
A memorable snapshot of the era’s social and fashion trends, House Party is a jubilant celebration that also speaks to the importance of appreciating Black culture without ignoring widespread societal problems. The 9/16 screening will be copresented by Afrikan Poetry Theatre and followed by a panel discussion.
