Suneil Sanzgiri: Golden Jubilee
Urban Video Project

Price: Free
Everson Museum of Art Plaza
401 Harrison St., Syracuse

What is liberation when so much has already been taken? In Golden Jubilee, Sanzgiri reconsiders ideas of freedom, loss, and recovery in the wake of colonial and neo-colonial theft. The film asks us to consider "what is liberation when so much has been lost?" Reflecting on the contradictions in the pursuit of 'preservation,' the filmmaker creates a 3D virtual rendering of his father's home in Goa using the same technologies of surveillance that mining companies use to extract iron ore in the region. Sanzgiri's signature blend of 16mm sequences, 3D renders, direct animation, and desktop aesthetics are vividly employed in this lush and ghostly look at questions of heritage, culture, and the remnants of history. (2021, 18:30 minutes)

Suneil Sanzgiri is an artist, researcher, and filmmaker. His work spans experimental video and film, animations, essays, and installations and contends with questions of identity, heritage, culture, and diaspora in relation to structural violence.

Screening begins at dusk.
