Back in 20 mins is an invitation to examine a world of possibilities within our present spatial, social, emotional, and physical capacities. In its format, this pluridisciplinary online program includes a collaborative SoundCloud playlist, a written contribution, and a screening program that draws on the collective desire to mentally check-out, stretch one’s body, tag along for a long drive, and meaningfully connect with our environment and other beings. Some questions guiding my curatorial discourse are: what kind of psychological latitude is provided through the unfolding of familiar and foreign spaces? What is the relationship between music, wanderlust, and emotional resonance? What are the musings or the memories we recall when going on a stroll?

Available on Sunday March 28, April 4, and April 11 from 9am-12pm.

“The Breadth of” is a free, public symposium that investigates and responds to the living archive of the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre (CFMDC).

This critical inquiry uses the CFMDC collection as a launching point, where we will engage, agitate and take stock, bring new ideas into consideration, and react through creative and critical dialogue. The Breadth Of grapples with themes of re-contextualizing and challenging the predominant historic narratives of media art and activism, while looking at what present and futures we wish to build. This symposium offers alternatives to current structures and relationships and proposes how collectively we can challenge the inequitable ways in which media is constructed.
