The Nightingale Cinema is thrilled to present an experiential program of short works by Nightingale-in-Residence Fall 2021 artist Joelle Mercedes. Pensaba Qué El Mundo Se Te Iba Derrumbar Encima is a program composed of three parts: a screening of new short films, a participatory drawing exercise, and a reading of original texts. The night is loosely structured under the following questions: Where do the cavities on a tree lead us to? How does a plastic tablecloth help communicate the vibrations of a spirit? What happens when a bird bites off your head? In considering these questions Joelle uses 16mm film, experimental sound, and language to investigate the world of birds.
