About this Event

The Blaffer Art Museum and 2019 Houston Cinema Arts Festival present a one-night film program inspired by the exhibition Gareth Long: Kidnappers Foil on view through March 14, 2020. The screening features film and video works that explore relationships between mass media, image circulation, social memory, and place, honing in on Houston, Miami, and the Persian Gulf Region. Like the exhibition Kidnappers Foil, the screening program examines the mediation of local histories, following the ways in which non-professional subjects are mediatized and the cultural effects and repetitive nature of pop culture phenomena.

The screening program includes the following films:

Eileen Maxson, UNWRAPPING ""REALITY BITES"" ON VHS, 2015. 10 minutes 25 seconds

Terence Price II, Dancing in the Absence of Pain, 2018. 25 minutes

Monira Al Qadiri, The Craft, 2018. 16 minutes

Deborah Statman, Energy Country, 2003. 14 minutes 30 seconds
