“Tear, Suture, Scab” Film Screening and Q&A with Ayo Jackson and Mike Calway-Fagen

Jun 27

Director Ayo Jackson’s film “Tear Suture Scab” explores the redemptive power of the unicorn as exemplified in Medieval European art through an Afro-futurist lens. A screening of this film will be followed by a Q&A session with Jackson and curator Mike Calway-Fagen on June 27 at 6:00 p.m. at Kan-Kan Cinema.

Surrealist and absurdist in concept, the film is an allegory of death, resurrection, and the release of trauma. Its fantastical imagery and coded humor disarm the viewer while addressing the violence that marks Black American life. Scored by Greg Tate; it was the legendary cultural critic and composer’s final film project. The 24-minute film was written and directed by Ayo Janeen Jackson. Stick around after the screening for a Q&A with Jackson and curator Mike Calway-Fagen.

Tickets are available for purchase from Kan-Kan Cinema’s online ticketing system or at the door.

Ayo Jackson’s work is part of Herron School of Art and Design’s 3 by 3 exhibition, on view at Eskenazi Hall’s Berkshire, Reese, and Paul Galleries from June 26 – August 10.

Event Cost $5.00
