We will be joined by artist April Lin and their collaborators Jasmine Lin and Samir Saunders for an online conversation and audience Q&A following the screening April Lin 林森: now i close my eyes the world i see is so beautiful.
April Lin uses video as a self-reflexive and cathartic tool. Part of the post-Internet generation, their work interweaves strands of autobiography, performance, documentary and world-building. These four deeply personal films touch on their romantic artistic collaboration with a distant lover; on the restorative power of collective rest; and on our shifting relation to death and mourning in the age of social media.
This Q&A will be hosted on Zoom and April Lin’s films are available to watch online as part of the HOME Artist Film Weekender 2020 from Thu 3 Dec – Sun 6 Dec.
