PSA Projects is pleased to announce Carolyn Faber's Take Your Time screening at various locations for a one night screening across Chicago. Sites curated by Andrew Cantrell, Jason Halprin, Jason Pallas, and Erik Wenzel. Specific locations below.
Take Your Time visualizes the subconscious act of remembering. Annemie stands in front of her home in Flonheim, Germany remembering former neighbors who fled persecution in the late 1930s, or were deported to concentration camps. Prompted by questions from her community, her fragmented memories take shape around visual cues in her familiar surroundings. We learn only what we ask her, and as much as she can recall. An unstable transaction at best. The footage is culled from Faber’s work-in-progress documentary While You Were Here.
11/3: 5-6 PM
