Matterspacetime - Kiira Benzing (Ridgewood, New Jersey)
Bodies pulse and blur dimensions as they connect space and time. Rhythms of Nature take over the form. Organic sound crosses in and out of a choral landscape. Nature is king but also polluted by mankind. Re-photographed on Super8mm and hand processed, Matterspacetime questions the matter and form of film. 2015; 9 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Kiira Benzing!
Lords of BSV - Maria Soccor (Union, New Jersey)
Hailing from Bed Stuy, Brooklyln, Brukup is an exhilarating dance form that a group of young men and women follow like a religion, but it is also one that they continually re-invent. Using the foundation of the Brukup movement to enhance their free-form style of dance, they seek to escape the street life, and to become The Lords of BSV. 2015; 79 min. With an introduction and Q+A session with Director Maria Soccor! Co-sponsored by the Rutgers University Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs (GAIA Centers), the Rutgers University American Studies Department and the Rutgers University MGSA Dance Department!
