BROKEN ENGLISH: Film Screening and talk by Jeanne C. Finley
Jeanne C. Finley will present a screening of experimental non-fiction works and installation projects. These works, many created in collaboration with John Muse, frequently utilize complex narrative structure and story telling to reflect on the contested past, the turbulent present and the unpredictable future. Her process often includes documentary strategies such as research and interviews to produce multiple narratives that collide and interweave amid a lush visual and sonic landscape. The use of layered visual and spoken text, such as subtitles and voice-over serves to uncover contradictory layers of meaning. Ranging in subjects from her mother's participation in the invasion of Southern France during WWll, to 16-year-olds today aging out of an orphanage on the steppes of Kazakhstan, these projects explore the physical sites where transformative social events shape individual lives.
