November 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
How do severed architectures become sites of memory? How do Indigenous peoples and diasporic settlers come to occupy constructed landscapes as specters? This program explores human intimacies with transitory landscapes—built urban neighbourhoods and homes that have been razed, turned to relics or converted to newer structures—undergoing erosion and censure under forces of colonialism, racism, and financialization. SAVAC is pleased to co-present with a program of short films, Ghost Landing, at the Regent Park Film Festival with BLACK GOLD.
The program will be followed by a talkback with the directors in attendance. It will be screened at Daniels Spectrum, which is an accessible venue. There is barrier-free access to the building via the Dundas Street entrance. Signage throughout the building in braille. All washrooms and drinking fountains are accessible. Feel free to contact Regent Park with any accessibility requests. Learn more about the films at savac.net/ghost-landing/
