Second Sight: Witchcraft, Ritual, Power

Comprised of three programs, this film series examines magic as a form of agency. 'Preparation Rituals' explores magic as performance and performance as control of oneself or others. 'Black Magic Cannot Cross Water' presents four constructed iterations of group ritual. And 'Stones Have Laws' presents two works of shared-ethnography in which the Saramaccan Maroon people of Suriname enact how they live within the forest—amidst rocks and rivers—demonstrating their procedures for consulting ancestors, gods and forest spirits.

Featuring work from Conor Bateman, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Malena Szlam, Mont Tesprateep, Lonnie van Brummelen & Siebren de Haan, Kevin Jerome Everson and others.
