Directions Screening 2: Future Archives

How does the material past manifest in the present? How can we re-write and re-image history "from below"? What would documentation of a decolonised, indigenous future look like?

Artist films in this programme draw on histories embedded in archives, museums, and rituals to imagine new possibilities now and tomorrow.

Before this screening at The Plymouth Athenaeum, have a drink and browse the Future Imaginaries Ephemeral Research Library (FIERL) to gain inspiration from radical historical, political, and most importantly science fiction interpretations of our world and worlds beyond.

6-7 pm: Future Imaginaries Ephemeral Research Library (FIERL).

7-8pm: Artist film screening including works by Onyeka Igwe (UK), Distruktur (Brazil/ Germany), Bretten Hannam (Canada) and more TBA.

The event is supported by the Mayflower 400 Culture Fund and Arts Council England. Entry is free and there's no need to book.
