Film Screening: LOVE CANAL
Wednesday, May 1
Shotgun Cinema & Deltaworkers present LOVE CANAL as part of Shotgun Cinema’s Full Aperture Series.
Entrance fee: $8 dollar (including a beer)
An evening in which Elsa Brès screens her films LOVE CANAL (2017) and STELLA 50.4N1.5E (2016) and shares ideas on her new film SWEAT, currently in production in New Orleans. A surprise film is shown at the end.
SWEAT navigates between fiction and documentary and follows the character of Guillaume de l’Isle, the first cartographer of Louisiana. He is wandering and lost since the beginning of the 18th century, unable to manage to measure precisely the always changing environment of the Mississippi delta. By thinking of the map as an act of control of space, and water as a political and resisting entity, we follow De l’Isle on his journey where he meets ghosts from the future and the past of the river’s history.
