Plug In Institute of Contemporary art presents Borderlands

Plug In - media releaseAs part of our Respondent Series on Tuesday, August 30th from 8:30- 10:30pm, Plug In Institute of Contemporary art presents Borderlands, a selection of films programmed by Montreal-based filmmaker and curator, Omar Elhamy.

For this screening, Elhamy responds to the theme of our current exhibition, The State by selecting films that address relationships to boundaries: charged emotional, psychological, physical and geographical sites, and the relationships that form around them. The films themselves defy borders. Produced at border sites (Patino), or using the Internet as intermediary for impossible distances (Wolski) makes ascribing them to one specific location challenging.

For more detailed information about the films please see our press release. We hope you will join us for the screening and share the event with your networks.
