AOTR Free Talk: Communities and Social Forms
In the films featured in this discussion, gestures of political and intellectual agitation reestablish how community and individual actions affect the social environment. Elisa Cepedal’s collective portrait of Asturian coal mines in Work, or to Whom Does the World Belong shows a working class solidarity in danger of extinction; in Here for Life, Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Adrian Jackson engender a space where a new community emerges from the ruins of an increasingly gentrified London; Ignacio Agüero’s I Never Climbed the Provincia offers an intimate meditation on the construction of space through sensations, memories, and interpersonal relationships; and Pacho Velez and Courtney Stephens expand on the multiplicity of history and its selective commemoration by documenting the remnants of the Berlin Wall scattered around the U.S. in The American Sector. This talk will focus on how different social formations generate history, and the potential for communal life to undermine the destructive cycles of capitalist expansion.
