MONITOR 13: Dance on my head and scratch my heart

Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - 7:00pm

MONITOR 13 invites the viewer to consider the indecipherable traces and charges of the past. It is an invitation to dance to the meditative, moving images in the program. Through letters, biographies, surfaces, sounds and architectures, the curators have assembled the films to gesture not only towards things lost and hidden along the way, but their connections to living and renewal.

MONITOR is SAVAC’s longstanding experimental South Asian film and video program that holds steady engagement with an international community of artists, curators and critics, initiating dialogues around the shifting nature of South Asian politics, economies and landscapes through artists’ film.

A discussion will follow the screening with curator Sharlene Bamboat and artists Swapnaa Tamhane (August Fröhls). Moderated by Ronald Rose-Antoinette.


Curators: Priya Sen, Sharlene Bamboat
