Cauleen Smith @ The Kitchen, July 1st, 8pm

Cauleen Smith is one of my favorite filmmakers/visual artists. Seriously, if I had to be stuck on a film set for the rest of my life, I would want to be on her set--I'd always be seeing, hearing, and learning something new. If someone told me she'd made a film about paint drying, I'd be first in line to get a seat. She would undoubtedly communicate something surreal, playful, and surprising in her realization of this commonly tedious reality (pictured right, still from I Want to See My Skirt)

But I don't have to wait for a Twilight Zone/Groundhog Day episode to take over my life, or for someone to commission a film about a blank wall in need of a touch up. Nope. Cauleen Smith is on her way to NYC to premier her latest film, The Fullness of Time, at The Kitchen to be followed by a conversation between herself and the film's executive producer Paul Chan (Waiting for Godot in New Orleans). The screening is part of The Kitchen's The Future As Disruption exhibition of film, sculpture, painting, and photography curated by Rashida Bumbray and Matthew Lyons.

The premise of the film continues Carbonist School co-founder Smith's interest in black futurist postulations and science fictions, with a "sister-from-another-planet" traveling to Earth to study its ways and landing in post-Katrina New Orleans. The film was shot on location in New Orleans and Smith collaborated with New Orleans writer/educator Kalamu ya Salaam and Students At the Center. I'm not going to restate the description from the flyer, so for more information click the image below or check out the The Kitchen's webpage.
Also, check out a clip from the film at the end of this post.

Also, for those hardcore Afrofuturists out there Otolith Group (Anjalika Sagar, Kodwo Eshun, and Richard Couzins) is screening at 7pm.
