Affinities, or the Weight of Cinema

The film series Affinities, or The Weight of Cinema was cocurated and presented in person by filmmaker Kevin Jerome Everson and writer Greg de Cuir Jr. at the National Gallery of Art in January 2018. Eight programs of international works of film and video art were arranged along various thematic lines that corresponded to the cocurators’ shared interests and concerns. In this podcast, the cocurators discuss their methods and two of the guest artists, Claudrena Harold, professor of African American studies at the University of Virginia, and artist Akosua Adoma Owusu, discuss their films selected for the series.
