Documentary for Critical Times

Join us for “Documentary for Critical Times,” a conversation about the possibilities and limits of the moving image in times of crisis. Organized in conjunction with the installation “The Zama Zama Project,” this event will feature a conversation with Susan Meiselas and Rosalind Morris about what it means to produce documents and documentaries of crisis—whether in the context of revolution, or in the aftermath of political violence and social upheaval, or against the backdrop of ongoing processes of deprivation and destitution, migration, and unsettlement. Reflecting on their respective efforts in very different times and places, Meiselas and Morris will discuss the different challenges of documenting the event and the fact of everyday violence.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit: https://slought.org/resources/documentary_for_critical_times
