where did we land is an ongoing experiment interrogating the effect of images of anti-black violence produced and reproduced in film and media. This iteration takes the form of a visual essay that explores the complex and, often adverse effects, of such images in film as a tool for fostering solidarity. The film features 900 abstracted still images that span the Diaspora, both spatially and temporally, accompanied by a spoken text that features words from Tina Campt, Saidiya Hartman, Rooney Elmi, Guy Debord and Susan Sontag.
where did we land screens as part of Inglan My Inglan: United Kingdom Shorts on Saturday, February 8 at 6:00pm.
