Geographical and Social Landscapes of Conflict, Both Real and Perceived:
A Special Flux Thursday
Thursday, April 14
8 pm +
Join us for Flux Thursday, our monthly potluck and salon. Dinner starts at 8, with presentations to follow. As part of The Typhoon Continues and So Do You, we are happy to present Geographical and Social Landscapes of Conflict, Both Real and Perceived, a pair of videos curated by Elizabeth Larison. Through a Glass Darkly, a short film by Owen Mundy, brings together over one hundred of the most popular war films edited into a chronologically correct survey of landscapes of conflict, at least according to Hollywood. Untitled part 2: beauty and the east, a documentary by Jayce Salloum, addresses issues of nationalism and the nation state, alienation, ethno-facism, polarities of time – among others – as described in a series of interviews with individuals from former Yugoslavia.
