Friday, October 3, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Renowned Indian feminist scholar Lata Mani
and Argentinian filmmaker Nicolás Grandi
present their recent collaboration, an experimental 38 minute video entitled De Sidere 7
a meditation on desire, queer embodiment, and urban space shot in New
Delhi and Bangalore. The screening of the video will be accompanied by a
discussion and Q&A with the filmmakers. Cherrie Moraga praises, “De Sidere 7
is a meditative inquiry of desire from the profound place of spirit.
The ever-teacher, Lata Mani, suggests desire is not to be transcended
but wholly embraced — as an embodied god, the black and white solitude of
almost still photograph, a woman in (re)pose and dance. Grandi’s
kaleidoscopic filmic work serves up a visual and aural feast that
captures the lingering scent of such knowings within us.”
