Doors at 6:15PM, screening at 6:45PM
Movies: A selection of short films including Miguel Angel Rios’s Crudo, 2008, 3’41”, fiction
Raw meat swirling in the air. This is the perspective Crudo offers to its viewers. A tap dancer’s feet, echoed with a series of barks break the silence while a white suit contradicts the darkness. Miguel Angel Rios’s short video piece opens the door to broad questions: taming animality/taming the self, alienation/cultured behaviors, the spectacle of violence/a metaphysical reflection on the rawness of our being.
