Event description

Description

Open Signal presents a showcase of three works by long-time producer Elijah Hasan, his collaborators and students.

The first of the three films, Midland Voices, is a showcase of work from youth that Elijah has worked with at several libraries in Multnomah County over the past year.

The second film, ALL CAPS, was helmed entirely by Hasan — who wrote, shot, directed and edited the project. It also includes his custom recordings and sound design.

The final screening of the evening, On A Heavenly Track, is an example of Hasan’s collaborative work. Shot in 2003 by the late filmmaker Julian Johnson, this film is a collection of interviews with African American Expatriates living in Paris. It offers a peek into what may be the underlying motivations that have lead to numerous Black Artists leaving the US for France. The project was edited, scored and produced by Hasan.

There will be a short panel discussion after the screening with some of the participants involved in the project. The segment will be taped for broadcast on Open Signal's channels.
