Cinema of Resistance

At a time when many feel called to resist the White House’s attacks on numerous fronts, we at the HFA feel compelled to do our part. Cinema has always been a method of examining the world the way it is, in order to understand it, to begin to change it, to imagine it otherwise. So we present a monthly series of films animated with the spirit of protest, of pointing out oppression and working towards justice. These screenings will be designed to spark discussion, beginning in our theater directly after the screening.

One of the shows is an addendum to our Visconti retrospective, and we are also pleased to welcome director Midi Z to discuss his film City of Jade with visiting curator Yangqiao Lu.
