Curator: Julia Eilers Smith 𝐌𝐢𝐫𝐲𝐚𝐦 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐞𝐬, 𝐉𝐚𝐦𝐞𝐬 𝐍𝐢𝐜𝐡𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐬 𝐃𝐮𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐝𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐝, 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐞 𝐆𝐨𝐥𝐝𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐠, 𝐅𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐨𝐧 𝐒𝐢𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐝, 𝐌𝐚𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐚 𝐒𝐳𝐥𝐚𝐦 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐲𝐫𝐮𝐬 𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐜𝐮𝐬 𝐖𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐼𝑛 𝑡ℎ𝑒 𝑁𝑜 𝐿𝑜𝑛𝑔𝑒𝑟 𝑁𝑜𝑡 𝑌𝑒𝑡 operates on the premise that the apocalypse is not to come but ongoing. Shifting focus away from the familiar scenarios of planetary extinction, the artists in the exhibition point to reconfigurations of our apocalyptic narratives, insisting that the end is plural, both occurring and having already occurred, and uneven in its distribution across time and place.

Montreal, Quebec H2X 1K1 Canada

Join us for the Montreal Theatrical release of Illusions of Control, with a Q&A with director and Concordia alumni Shannon Walsh! A riveting meditation on resilience in the face of disaster, ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL unfolds in landscapes irrevocably shaped by human attempts to dominate them. Five women confront unbearable crises: Silvia searches for her missing daughter in the deserts of northern Mexico; Yang attempts to hold back the expanding desert in China; Kaori mobilizes mothers as citizen-scientist to monitor radiation in Fukushima, Japan; Stacey builds on Indigenous knowledge to confront toxic legacies in Yellowknife; and, Lauren stands at the crossroads of a terminal cancer diagnosis in Chicago. What opportunities does ecological instability offer for imagining new ways of relating to each other, to the places we inhabit, and to our collective future? Each story reveals surprising ways to live on, and reimagine life in the ruins. Presented by Cinema Politica Network, hosted by Cinémathèque québécoise. Friday February 7 @ 8:00 PM - director in attendance, English subtitles Sunday February 9 @ 3:00 PM - director in attendance, French subtitles Tuesday February 11 @ 6:00 PM Saturday February 15 @ 3:00 PM Monday February 17 @ 6:00 PM Wednesday February 19…
