The Flaherty is thrilled to announce its upcoming 2021 Fall Flaherty NYC, Transformation and Renewal programmed by Kelsey White and L u m i a

The series will run December 1st to 18th in venues across New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Harlem) and online. We are excited to be partnering this season with Anthology Film Archives, Microscope Gallery, UnionDocs, and Maysles Documentary Center. This series of films highlights works by artists and visionaries who reimagine life and transform its representation, often in response to the many crises that mark their epochs.

Transformation and Renewal “Be ye not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” -Romans 12

From the warm flicker of the hand-cranked projector to the cool glow of a cracked iPhone screen, cinema remains in flux, and yet it continues to offer the viewer chances to encounter uniquely personal visions. These visions alter our perceptions of reality and strengthen our resistance to conformity and complacency. Is this cinema as sorcery? Voluntary derangement of the senses can lead to unexpected possibilities, and the recovery of presence reveals the joy of living shrouded in the loss that marks our time.
