Join filmmaker and curator Amir George as he presents footage of a new experimental documentary for two screens, Conundrums of Uttermost Importance. Described by George as a “dual unraveling," the piece is an experimental documentary in which the filmmaker imagines the ways location and environment can delimit an individual’s behavior while maneuvering public and private spaces, as a voyeur and subject. Conundrums is a non-linear juxtaposition rooted in mysticism and black cultural aesthetics.
