Details

IN/FLUX is a series of three DVDs centering on experimental film and video from the African world. The violence and the pleasures, the contradictions, fears and desires of a planet shaped by the postcolonial condition, the present-future of our common humanity in a global, 21st century system shot through with radical change: these are the foci of IN/FLUX, addressed from Africa and her diasporas by creators who reject easy approached or answers. The works included in the second volume address the dual theme of urban history and memory. They consider ways in which past and present intersect in the city, interrogating, destabilizing and at times radically shifting perceptions of one another. Individually and as a group, they offer richly nuanced, politically and ethically engaged takes on urban conditions, cultures and imaginaries.
