Join us for an outdoor screening series of films by artists and filmmakers from the Pacific, Latin America, and Central and Eastern Europe, presented in conjunction with the exhibition Surrealism Beyond Borders. Each weekend features a different film program that extends the exhibition's reconsideration of Surrealism as a true “movement” across boundaries of geography and chronology, recasting appreciation of this revolutionary, emancipatory, and globe-spanning idea. The films explore the collective concerns that animated Surrealism, as well as the historical and national distinctions that characterized regional cinema.
