Screenings: Thursday, March 7 at 8pm
Saturday, March 9 at 5pm
In partnership with WPA and Suns Cinema, Eames Armstrong presents two nights of film by Brooklyn-based Madsen Minax. Join us Thursday, March 7 at 8pm for the surreal feature length Kairos Dirt & the Errant Vacuum at Suns Cinema, and on Saturday, March 9 at 5pm for an evening of short films and a conversation with the filmmaker at WPA. Madsen Minax’s films draw on his history of participation in justice-oriented communities. Using nonlinear narratives to explore hidden networks of interconnectedness, Minax aims to investigate and honor the entanglements of human connectivity and the nature of transformation.
