INFRARED: Dislocation of Existence in Celebration of the Compton Transgender District
San Francisco Cinematheque
Visual AIDS Artist Mykki Blanco's "Stones and Water Weight" Film will screen at INFRARED on October 16th, 8PM at San Francisco Cinematheque.
A circular poem. A detective film. A performance of endurance. Hair flips. Hormone injection. Bodies adjoining bodies. Bodies being left behind. Messages from post-apocalyptic times. Dispatches from Standing Rock. The films in this program shift between embodiment and disassociation. They offer ephemeral glimpses into what’s possible and pulverizing flashes of what’s been stolen. Interlacing the physical with the ethereal, affects rapidly alter between despondency and euphoria. (Malic Amalya)
