    Sep. 27 features the short film collection “Metamorphosis,” the ten year anniversary edition of programmer Claire Diao’s touring short film program Quartiers Lointains, with Diao and featured filmmaker Aude N’Guessan Forget joining in-person for a special Q&A discussion moderated by Aryana Alexis Anderson.

    “How can we best exist in societies that are both ours and yet other? How to best navigate institutions that are not always equipped to deal with the issues we face? How to find mystical or rational remedies to heal our wounds? These are questions that traverse the African diasporas. The transformations that exile, having to adapt to new cultures, sickness, or pain. To us, those topics are often minimized and rarely represented on the screen. Captured in documentary, animation, and fiction short films, our seventh season shines a light on these physical and psychic metamorphosis.” -Quartiers Lointains program description (Watch teaser trailer)

    A collaboration between the Office for Global Education, the Global Scholars Program, and the School of Film and Media Studies.
