This film screening takes place at an outdoor lot at the corner of Commerce St. and Roberts St. in Second Ward. Co-presented by Aurora Picture Show with the Houston Climate Justice Museum, and curated by Salome Kokoladze, this selection of contemporary films was inspired by questioning the infrastructures put in place to promote or prevent movement. “Green bridges” are typically covered with native vegetation to guide animals safely across highways. “Transient walls” refers to the recent surge in border wall constructions around the world. Featuring short works by artists including Miguel Angel Ríos, Baba Hillman, and Art Jones, the program leans into the absurd to investigate links between freedom of movement, inter-species relationships, and environmental and political crises.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own blankets and lawn chairs for this free, outdoor screening.
