(Various artists, 2017-2021, ~35 min + conversation, digital)

 
RSVP

Concerned Black Image Makers (CBIM) presents a program of Black cinema shorts that traverse questions of leisure, rest, ways of “being”, memory reconstruction, and dreaming practices through the lens of the body, history, place, poetics, the spiritual, and family lineage.

Following the screening, members of the Concerned Black Image Makers will join Shala Miller in conversation.


CBIM bio:

Founded in 2017 by L’soft and zakkiyyah najeebah dumas o’neal, CBIM facilitates dialogue and meaningful collaborations amongst lens-based artists whose concerns are specific to the diverse spectrums of Black identified experiences, while also highlighting alternative visions and critiques of black aesthetics.

CBIM prioritizes the critical connections between lens-based practices and the demand for visual integrity.
