May – The TakeOver – Hayti Film Next Level



This month, Hayti Film Next Level series presents two organizations on the leading edge of Black filmmaking. On Friday, May 13th @ 7pm, we present Afro + Projection LAB’s latest curated program of Black Experimental Cinema. And then on Saturday, May 14th, Black Film Space offers up one of its signature screenwriting workshops.

Afro + Projection LAB

Founded by Devon “Vonnie Quest” Smith, Afro + Projection LAB is an interdisciplinary art program that teaches, engages in, and presents Black Experimental Cinema. Future Film/Video Residency. This month, we present a curated program along with a special talkback with Vonnie Quest.

The Afro+Projection Lab presents Stewarding Cinematic Spaces of Care. These videos engage with questions that arise at the convergence of archival practices, gestures of care, and the moving image. Stewarding Cinematic Spaces of Care uses Gil Z. Hochberg’s, archival imagination as a thematic link between the five films in the program. Each filmmaker not only engages with the archive(s), but reimagines its function for alternative futures.
