America, dir. Garrett Bradley, USA 2019, 29 min.
Following the screening, Garrett Bradley will be in conversation with curator Karen Alexander and sound designer Trevor Mathison.
Composed entirely of black-and-white images, Garrett Bradley’s America juxtaposes sequences from the recently re-discovered Lime Kiln Club Field Day, thought to be the oldest surviving film featuring African-American actors, with twelve short films centring on marginalised and forgotten figures from African-American history. Originally conceived as a silent film, the sound composition was designed by Trevor Mathison of the seminal Black Audio Film Collective.
