Join us on Thursday, September 20, 7:30pm, for night 20 of the Unseen Festival, with films by Amir George. Preceded by a reading curated by Tameca Coleman, featuring Ralonda N. Simmons and Ahja Fox.

Gravity and Grace

Simone Weil woven into the tarot, the death of time breeds desire.

Cedric & Cindy

Two friends share conversations in the arboretum

This is Not Okay

Three vignettes of situations and experiences of the unpleasant and empathetic

Passages of Excess

Ethereal movement and its relation to the physical world. Mundane gestures, ideas and images generated over time

Optimum Continuum

An on-going barrage of blackness always in progress. Abrupt patterns, part of and as a whole.

Mum

A matriarchal experience.

Amir George is a filmmaker and curator who creates spiritual stories, juxtaposing sound and image with a non-linear perception. He creates fragmented vignettes that conjure the secret life of objects both found and collected. The characters that inhabit his stories tend to dwell outside of social norms and exist in the space between and in the process of becoming. Following up from his Better Made Progress collection of work presented in Denver in September 2017.
