Home Movies: films by Jonas Mekas, Chantal Akerman, Moyra Davey and Agnès Varda
Curated by Anna Rankin and Selina Ershadi
Wednesday 24–Saturday 27 April
Please join us for Home Movies, a series of screenings of films by Jonas Mekas, Chantal Akerman, Moyra Davey and Agnès Varda from Wednesday 24– Saturday 27 April.
Home Movies includes works by experimental filmmakers which belong, in part, to a lineage and mode of home movies, film diaries and personal documentary. Each of these works reach beyond and toward each other, crossing time and threading evocations of memory, family, displacement and loss.
The film series was organised by Anna Rankin and Selina Ershadi earlier this year to celebrate the life and work of Jonas Mekas and hosted by RM, Tāmaki Makaurau. Home Movies will be presented in Pōneke at Enjoy and will include films by Jonas Mekas, Chantal Akerman, Moyra Davey, and will close with Agnès Varda's The Beaches of Agnès (2008), in honour of her significant contribution to cinema and art.
