Lydia Moyer: Experimental Short Films


The personal and the political are interwoven with the magical and the traumatic in this program of recent shorts from the age of the Anthropocene. Drawing equally on the natural and socially constructed worlds, these experimental videos play with form and format while focusing on the U.S. as a contemporary and historical site. They cover ground from recent uprisings in response to police violence to climate change to historical relationships between natives and settlers on U.S. ground. Discussion with filmmaker Lydia Moyer
