Filmmaking, like all art forms, has the ability to act as a powerful form of catharsis. Cinema also invites us as viewers to relate on an individual level to another person's complex expressions of grief – and sometimes to process our own grief through works that carry no direct connection to loss. In this lies the potential for a transcendent experience, both wholly singular yet universal. Even when we are faced with a relentless ocean of feelings and thoughts, cinema can buoy us as we drift in the waves.  

This program, curated by L'Etna member Malo Sutra Fish in collaboration with AgX members Stefan Grabowski and Genevieve Carmel, includes a selection of six films relating to grief in various forms, made by experimental filmmakers from the French artist-run film labs L’Etna, L’Abominable, MTK, and Labo K. Co-presented by the AgX Film Collective and Balagan Films.

Malo Sutra Fish will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.
