Blood and Bounds

OV with English subs
Followed by a talk with Ahmad Awadalla

Followed by a talk with Sarnt Utamachote, Popo Fan, Ragil Huda, and Ahmed Awadalla and a closing party.

Slow-motion shots that reveal parts of bodies and fragmented films ask the audience to re-construct these slices as fully embodied human beings. Taking a US-American Black-queer perspective in Non, je ne regrette rien (No Regret) and a Canadian-Caribbean Asian-queer viewpoint in Sea in the Blood, both films interweave a centuries-old shared sense of sociality and bodily memories with the poetics of kinship – notions which have long inspired queer BIPOC social movements.
