RSVP to let us know you are coming ♥
A night of short films and conversations.
Longing for someone or something to be there with us is longing for solidarity, for presence, for love, for understanding, for flesh, for friendship. Battles, repair and resilience only exist in relation to and the battlegrounds are not as desolate when you are with me.
To acknowledge our need for one another, and how we might seek to repair our feelings of loss and isolation, the harm done to our body and the body politics, broken relationships, and share in the beauty that might be our shared grief.
