Magic Lantern presents “Utopic Fantasy/Infinite Gender/Experimental History,”

204 South Main St, Providence, RI   (view map)

The theme of Magic Lantern’s latest cinematic collection is “Utopic Fantasy/Infinite Gender/Experimental History.” That’s above our feeble ken, so we’ll let them explain: “Utopic narrative often leans towards the future, plumbing and prophesying worlds to come, offering a fantasy of ‘becoming’; idyllic tomorrows and possible beautiful new approaches to consciousness. But what happens when that longing turns backwards and marches into the past, or into the vague netherworlds of memory? Walking hand in hand with that question is the query: what happens when gender binaries shatter and eyeballs awaken to a whole new visible spectrum of gender expressions?” Some potential answers will be provided by Cary Cronenwatt’s Maggots and Men, which “re-imagines the story of the 1921 rebellion of the [Russian] Kronstadt sailors with a twist of gender anarchy”; Lorelei Pepi’s Happy and Gay, a revisionist take on early animated works; No Man’s Land, a performance video by Jason Curzake and Shey Rivera that explores gender, identity, ritual, and sexuality; and two other works. The thought-provoking begins at 8 pm | $5 |

featuring Maggots and Men, by Cary Creonenwett; Happy and Gay, by Lorelei Pepi; AI NA IV, by Maralie; No Man's Land, by ISLANDS [Jason Curzake and Shey Rivera]; and Banquet, by Nell Gross, Katrina Silander Clark, and Julia Moses
