Lecture Series: PERSISTENCE


THEATER 1 Tue, Oct 10, 2023 6:00 PM


Third in the POSTWAR film trilogy, after DISPLACED PERSON and COOPERATION OF PARTS (screening September 26), PERSISTENCE is a meditation on the time just after a great historical event, about what is common to moments such as these, about the continuous and discontinuous threads of history. PERSISTENCE does away with conventional thinking about linear time and reconfigures our relationship to historical and durational experience. Using archival materials as well as film shot for some future archive, the prevailing consciousness of ‘history’—its multiple narratives and appearances—is always close at hand.
