Filming in the Dark

Artist and filmmaker Ana Vaz curates an evening of films expanding temporal and geographic relationships at the heart of her ongoing project The Voyage Out.

The project investigates the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear accident and the birth of a new land in Pacific south of Japan through a speculative fiction exploring the limits of the visible and the invisible, of life and non-life, of mutiny and mutation.
