Nonfiction Binaries

With Amir George and Karen McMullen

Nonfiction Binaries is a dual unraveling; a performative lecture and a screening of an experimental documentary work in progress, “Conundrums of the Uttermost Importance.” In Conundrums, Amir George imagines the ways in which location and environment can delimit an individual’s behavior. While he himself maneuvers public and private spaces, as a voyeur and subject, Amir’s work explores non-linear juxtapositions rooted in mysticism and black cultural aesthetics. He is the co-founder of Black Radical Imagination, a touring experimental film series and a programmer at True/False Film Fest.
