The short film LADY EVA will be screened in the 11th Creative Time Summit, an annual convening for thinkers, dreamers, and doers working at the intersection of art and politics will be held in Miami for the first time this November 1-3, 2018.
Titled On Archipelagos and Other Imaginaries—Collective Strategies to Inhabit the World, it takes coalition as a central theme, and utilizes the archipelago as a framework to delve into Miami’s historical connection to the Caribbean and, by extension, to Latin America and the entire world.
The topics under discussion will range from immigration and borders to climate realities, notions of intersectional justice, gentrification, tourism as an enabler for neocolonialism, and the roles art and activism can play in all these pressing issues.
The Summit will hold its inaugural Film Series in Miami-Beach, featuring showings by filmmakers from the Miami-Florida area, the Caribbean, Latin America, and beyond, highlighting the richness and diversity of independent filmmaking. The selected films broadly engage with the major themes of this year’s Summit, encouraging thoughtful conversations around borders and migration, ecological struggles, gender politics, and economic inequality.
The Film Series will feature work by Laura Huertas Millán; Daniel Lima; Antonia Wright; Oliver Ressler; Lorena Manríquez and Marlene McCurtis; Nástio Mosquito; Hinaleimoana Wong-Kalu, Dean Hamer, and Joe Wilson; Cinthia Marcelle; Braden King; Fan Popo; Selma Selman; Terence Nance; Rena Rädle and Vladan Jeremić; Guadalupe Rosales and Matt Wolf.
