Hamilton Artists Inc. is pleased to partner with SAVAC for a special screening of Monitor 14: Drifting with the Summer Tides.
In partnership with SAVAC, Monitor 14 will be screened online as part of the ongoing Online Screening Series, presented on CFMDC's website.
We are excited to help bring SAVAC's shorts program Monitor 14 to CFMDC. Monitor 14: Drifting with the Summer Tides asks the viewer to float and travel towards different realities and lived experiences that the artists and filmmakers find necessary to mediate and communicate. The program articulates along four movements, Billowing Tide, Wave Crest, Breaker Tide, and Ebbing Wave, featuring films by: Meera Devidayal, Gian Spina, Valerio Rocco Orlando, Jayce Salloum, Sponge Gourd, Mairead McClean, Karan Shrestha, Ghita Skali, Dalia Al-Kury, Pathompon Mont Tesprateep, Inas Halabi and Taiki Sakpisit.
SAVAC (South Asian Visual Centre) is a nomadic artist-run organization dedicated to fostering imaginative thought among artists and curators of colour and integrating them into the Canadian contemporary arts ecology through self-representation frameworks. For over a decade, MONITOR has held a steady engagement with an international community of artists, curators and critics, initiating dialogues around the shifting nature of South Asian politics, economies and landscapes through artists’ film. Monitor 13: Dance on my head and scratch my heart is co-curated by Montreal-based artist and filmmaker Sharlene Bamboat and Delhi-based filmmaker Priya Sen.
