Spell Reel de Filipa César I Nova Iorque

Short films screening & Conversation    26 June | 7 pm
Weeklong Moma Run: ‘Spell Reel’           27 June – 2 July

Moma, New York, USA

“The Portuguese-born, Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Filipa César presents an evening of short films in advance of a weeklong Moma run of her first feature, Spell Reel. César’s work exists at the intersection of fiction and documentary, exploring history, place, and identity through intertwined personal and national narratives. Characterised by rigorous structural and lyrical elements, her multiform meditations often focus on Portuguese colonialism and the liberation of Guinea-Bissau in the 1960s and 1970s. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Nuno Lisboa, 2017 Flaherty Seminar Programmer, and Sophie Cavoulacos, Assistant Curator, Department of Film. This event is presented in conjunction with the 2017 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar.”.
