Caribbean Film and Relational Poetics

Virtual Event

With Wally Fall, Jason Fitzroy Jeffers, Shari Petti, and Nino Martinez Sosa; moderated by Dessane Lopez Cassell


Drawing on Glissant’s poetics of relation, this conversation considers how the writer, and by extension, filmmaker and cultural worker, embrace créolité and transcend colonially produced “nonhistory” and isolation, by creating the conditions for cultural memory, connection, and transformation. The panel asks: What are the affordances of archipelagic thinking and making, and how are our subterranean connections palpable through film and media?
