Over the course of May we invite you to explore the evolving concept map created by Christina Battle and Samay Arcentales Cajas. To write your own reminder of slowness, sign up for this snail mail project.
From May 12-26, If a tree falls curated by Daniel McIntyre and Rolla Tahir envision an intergenerational dialogue between films created over several decades, questioning the distribution of works outside of typical festival eligibility rules. Further thinking of how to channel space and time, these works are available for you to peruse at your own leasure over the course of 14 days.
