States of Violence

December 21 at 2:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall  

States of Violence adopts a personal approach from those directly affected by incarceration, police brutality, crime, and war from the 1970s to the present day. This program demonstrates how partici-patory community media has enabled artists and creators to pro-duce their own moving images in the name of creating a discourse for better sociocultural understandings and tangible progressions toward change. Included are Inside Women Inside (Christine Choy and Cynthia Maurizio/Newsreel, 1978) and Black Lives Matter (Movement for Black Lives, 2014–2018), among other titles. (Total running time approximately 103 minutes)
