Description

This session will feature a screening of “Passages, A Fable In Six Cycles,” a short animated film and musical score. The work was created collaboratively by Brian Chin and Scott Kolbo, and comments on contemporary anxieties about security and immigration through six circular loops of imagery and sound, with a heavy emphasis on slapstick humor and absurdity. The piece also tells an inspiring story about resilience and hope in the face of historical tragedy and ecological crisis. After the screening the faculty will lead a discussion about how the Arts can function in a “prophetic” way in this divisive moment of history.
