BAM and Triple Canopy: On Resentment
March 21 @ 7:30 pm
This expansive program, a collaboration between BAM and digital literary magazine Triple Canopy, looks
at how resentment has been expressed in the medium of film. Moving beyond popular narratives of white
male resentment, the program features formally daring, thematically ambitious works that wrestle with
identity and representation, violence and ownership, revolutions and dead ends. Films include: La Haine
(Kassovitz, 1995); The Task (Ledare, 2018); Medium Cool (Wexler, 1969); Zabriskie Point (Antonioni,
1970); Who Killed Vincent Chin? (Choy, 1987); Petition (Zhao, 2009); A Separation (Farhadi, 2011);
Zama (Martel, 2017); If… (Anderson, 1968); Dr. Strangelove: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and
Love the Bomb (Kubrick, 1964); Manila in the Claws of Light (Brocka, 1975); The Prison in Twelve
Landscapes (Story, 2016); Hunger (Steve McQueen, 2008); Welcome II the Terrordome (Onwurah,
1995), with an entirely sincere, comprehensive and essential step by step guide to creating a film:
the black london edition (Emeke, 2018); Handsworth Songs (Akomfrah, 1986); an evening with Sky
Hopinka, featuring Fainting Spells (2018) and Dislocation Blues (2017); and Bamboozled (Lee, 2000).
