Film | Crazywise (2016): Transforming Psychological Crisis (online)


Crazy...or wise? The traditional wisdom of indigenous cultures often contradicts modern views about a mental health crisis. Is it a 'calling' to grow or just a 'broken brain'? This documentary explores what can be learned from people around the world who have turned their psychological crisis into a positive transformative experience. The director, Phil Borges, and renowned mental health professional Gabor Mate will follow the screening with a panel session. The panel will explore finding meaning through suffering, how indigenous cultures identify "psychotic" symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential, and the growing severity of the mental health crisis in America dominated by biomedical psychiatry.

Author Reading | Speak, Silence: In Search of W. G. Sebald


W. G. Sebald was one of the most extraordinary and influential writers of the 20th century. Through books including The Emigrants, Austerlitz and The Rings of Saturn, he pursued an original literary vision that combined fiction, history, autobiography and photography and addressed some of the most profound themes of contemporary literature: the burden of the Holocaust, memory, loss and exile.   The first biography to explore his life and work, Carole Angier's Speak, Silence pursues the true Sebald through the memories of those who knew him and through the work he left behind. This quest takes Angier from Sebald’s birth as a second-generation German at the end of the Second World War, through his rejection of the poisoned inheritance of the Third Reich, to his emigration to England, exploring the choice of isolation and exile that drove his work. It digs deep into a creative mind on the edge, finding profound empathy and paradoxical coldness, saving humour and an elusive mix of fact and fiction in his life as well as work. The result is a unique, ferociously original portrait that pushes the boundaries of biography just as its subject pushed the boundaries of fiction.

A Room with a View: Artist and Architect in Conversation (online)


A virtual celebration of Radcliffe Bailey’s recent solo exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery, Ascents and Echoes. The Atlanta-based painter, sculptor, and mixed media artist uses rich layerings of imagery, found objects, and text to explore ancestry, race, migration and collective memory.

Wilson, who makes visible the ways that anti-Black racism shapes the built environment, along with the ways Blackness creates spaces of imagination, refusal, and desire.

Author Reading | Black Joy: Stories of Resistance, Resilience, and Restoration (online)


When critically acclaimed author Tracey Michae’l Lewis-Giggetts wrote a piece for The Washington Post on Black joy in the early days of the pandemic, she had no idea it would resonate with countless people across the U.S. One moment of ecstatic, untrammeled laughter shared with her young daughter unleashed a powerful cascade of healing, affirmative joy that she contended was essential to resisting the pervasive dehumanization faced by Black folks every day. Lewis-Giggetts refracts this idea through a timely collection of intimate, uplifting, and powerful essays that celebrate Black joy as a tool for personal and collective healing, whether racism is conquered or not.
