Monday, 4pm screening: Q&A with Rodney Evans and Elegance Bratton (My House, Pier Kids)
Extensive eyesight loss and the possibility of total blindness didn’t shut down filmmaker Rodney Evans (Brother to Brother, 2004). Instead, it inspired this profoundly personal non-fiction film, which not only documents Evan’s own genetic eye disorder, but shows how three other working artists with visual impairments—photographer John Dugdale, writer Ryan Knighton, and dancer Kayla Hamilton— have adjusted their practices around their changed capacities. An intimate study of the artistic process that contemplates the relationship between the sense of sight and artistic “vision,” Evans’ film explores the quintessence of cinema: adventures in perception, subjectivity, and the imagination.
