Event description

Description

Props (or theatrical properties) are an essential part of storytelling on screen. How do we look at a film differently if we focus upon its cinematic objects?

Props: The Living End, is a participatory event that includes a viewing and discussion of Greg Araki’s The Living End (1992). A canonical work of New Queer Cinema about two young, gay, HIV-positive rebels on a fraught summertime road trip across Southern California, Araki’s world is one of alienation set amongst the objects and ephemera of 90s consumer culture; his characters exist in a world saturated with reminders of their own mortality. Participants will be invited to create lists of important instances of props on screen and to engage in a guided discussion about the film’s themes based on these lists.

The screening is an hour and a half long and will be followed by a 30 to 45 minute discussion. Refreshments will be served.

Space is limited so please RSVP.

Props: The Living End accompanies the group exhibition Propped, on view at Oakville Galleries June 25–September 2, 2017.
