Departure on Film...
All the films that will be screened during our upcoming event speak to or mark a departure. What does it mean (for a film) to depart? What does ‘leaving’ look like? To what extent can the act of leaving something, some place, someone also constitute an arrival?
A departure is:
an event; a displacement; a journey; something to celebrate, something to mourn; the foreclosure but also the inauguration of something.
