Filmmaker/Curator Ruth Somalo presents the world premiere of "Tell Me When You Die," a trilogy of performative films by Amber Bemak and Nadia Granados that reframe porn as a genre which can be empowering in its engagement with women and their bodies. Bemak and Granados work collaboratively with text, language, and the body to illustrate the colonial narratives that are still deeply entrenched and grappled with amongst minorities.
Curator/Researcher Almudena Escobar López will join Ruth, Amber, and Nadia in conversation to discuss the politics and reclamation of the nude body as a site for empowerment and experimentation within filmmaking.
