Still from Atopias: The Homeless Wanderer (2023), directed by Daniela Yohannes and Julien Béramis

Deep in the Mud… is an ongoing series that considers the wholly unique environment of the Caribbean and the various social, political, historical, and colonial resonances present in its current ecological moment. This second film program in the series presents three moving image works that find widely varying points of entry into the Caribbean’s land, sea, and sky. Julien Creuzet anachronistically highlights the enduring effects of the plantation economy in Martinique and Guadeloupe; Sofía Gallisá Muriente plaintively travels Puerto Rico documenting the calcified specter of natural disasters brought on by the colonial project; Daniela Yohannes and Julien Béramis bridges diasporic wanderings across an unforgiving landscape that counters the romanticized paradise of the Caribbean. These artists dig into the earthen cores of history and themselves to offer perspectives of archipelagic thinking.

Presented in English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Tigrinya with English subtitles.

Please note: Deep in the Mud, We Are Enmeshed in All Its Forms, II contains nudity.
