The Robert Flaherty Film Seminar: History is What's Happening*
The 59th Flaherty Seminar, "History is What's Happening," programmed by Pablo de Ocampo, will examine both the frame and subject of history in cinema to understand how the social and political conditions of the past are inextricably linked to the present. Featuring film and video works which employ radical gestures in both form and political position, the seminar will draw upon strategies of performance, collective production, re-speaking, and archival research to consider the ever-shifting contexts and conditions in which images from the past are watched and repurposed. Here, documentary listens as much as it tells; it produces an engaged space which hopes to create the conditions for communication. Questioning the effect of nostalgia in relationship to archives of images, the works in this program put forth the proposition that the function of history in cinema is not about remembering or recording, but about its potential for action.
