In the midst of Los Angeles’ early reopening after the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown, the past year is being crystallized as a time of private and public hibernation. Shut out from the expectations and interactions of daily life and routine, we experienced a collective shift in priority, experience, and flow — prompting interrogations of the role of institutions to change, shape and create a better world. Emerging from this time, we reflect on our own roles and responsibilities to one another and ourselves.
Feminist Center for Creative Work presents Rewind, a collective virtual screening series which postulates questions about relationship to the self as an entrypoint to considering familial dynamics, gender constructs, political histories, social injustices, and one’s ennui. The video selections locate varying strategies and touchpoints with which to examine these topics. From humor to Hollywood — videos produced both before and during the pandemic seek to develop self-examination as a fundamental practice of being.
As part of this program, FCCW will be hosting a weekly virtual conversation with the artists, where they have an in-depth dialogue on the video they’re showing in Rewind. Register on our site to join these talks!
