“Listens, sees … Rehearses” is an invitation to audiences to respond to the films that form the second part of GIVE BIRTH TO ME TOMORROW. The festival continues with an online screening available to watch from 13-20 March 2021 via LUX Scotland’s website, including works by Minia Biabiany, Evan Ifekoya, and Mathew Wayne Parkin, followed by a discussion event hosted by the programmers on Thursday 18 March from 6–8pm.
Online screening programme:
Evan Ifekoya, Contoured Thoughts, 2019. 4 mins, 42 sec.
Minia Biabiany, Pawòl sé van (words are wind), 2020. 13 mins.
Mathew Wayne Parkin, Mud Mask, 2018. 8 mins.
Total running time: 25 mins, 42 sec.
The programme lies in between the folds of artists’ moving image, performance documentation, protest documentary and animation, considering their strategies for interruption, to undo the formal and psychological trappings of a neo-colonial, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal cinema system.
GIVE BIRTH TO ME TOMORROW launched in January with an online screening of works by Isabel Barfod, De’Anne Crooks, Sharon Hayes, Kyuri Jeon, Sherisse Mohammed and Camille Turner. The festival will continue with a series of screenings and events scheduled to follow the lunar calendar across the rest of 2021. The following screening will take place from 20–27 April, with an event on Saturday, 24 April.
