Harris in attendance.
Tuesday, November 28, 6:00 p.m. | Shot in 16mm black and white, STILL/HERE is a meditation on the vast landscape of ruins and vacant lots that constitute the north side of St. Louis, Missouri, an area populated almost exclusively by working-class and working poor African Americans. The film explores the vestiges of a once-thriving community through evocative imagery of derelict cinemas, fading billboards and abandoned domestic spaces. Through a complex interweaving of the area’s musical, social and cultural history alongside ‘a series of visual and aural breakdowns, erasures, contradictions and gaps, Harris reflects on the destruction of a community and the wider politics of class and race in American society.

Lecture Series: Our fall Lecture Series celebrates 30 years of essential contributions to moving-image culture that alums from the Department of Film, Video, New Media, and Animation (FVNMA) at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) have produced. The series traces a through-line from late 20th century media practices to current modes of production, giving particular emphasis to the ways independent moving image makers have both changed the conventions of filmmaking and adapted to the digital turn of the 21st century. Lecturer: Daniel Eisenberg. View full series.
