About This Event

2020 > USA > Directed by Courtney Stephens & Pacho Velez \ (Civil War Surveillance Poems, Pt 1 by Mitch McCabe) \ For 18 months directors Stephens and Velez criss-crossed the United States chasing down over sixty remnants of the Berlin Wall, along the way interviewing a cross-section of the nation. These relics of the Cold War become a window into 21st century America. "A film that powerfully evokes the active presence of history in daily civic life—and reveals the politics that inhere in its commemoration." (The New Yorker) The film will be preceded by Mitch McCabe's Civil War Surveillance Poems, Pt 1 (2020, 15 mins), the first installment in a five-part project of experimental and hybrid-form short films contemplating a second American civil war via lyrical nonfiction, mixing call-in radio and twenty years of verité footage from the filmmaker\'s archive. McCabe, who teaches film at Ithaca College, will present the film in-person. \ 1 hr 22 min \
