Spanning genre and form, these personal and often humorous films by an intergenerational mix of Black, Brown and indigenous filmmakers engage in sensory observations about mythology, emotionality, visibility, spirituality and cultural preservation and loss. The program concludes with the 1995 feature length experimental documentary Bontoc Eulogy, in which director Marlon E. Fuentes memorializes the 1,100 Filipino tribal natives brought to the U.S. to be a "living exhibit" at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. In conjunction with Visions Into Infinite Archives, presented by SOMArts Cultural Center and curated by Black Salt Collective, a full schedule of the program and brief descriptions of the films are available online at somarts.org/infinitescreenings.
