Patricio Guzmán

Nostalgia For The Light


Nostalgia for the Light A pioneering filmmaker known for the 3-part epic The Battle of Chile, a classic of New Latin American Cinema, Patricio Guzmán returns to his homeland. In the Atacama Desert (10,000 feet above sea-level, where the heat keeps human remains intact), Guzmán documents the site as one visited both by astronomers exploring the universe's outermost edges, as well as the mothers of the "disappeared" who search for the remains of their missing sons and daughters.

"Stunningly beautiful. I don't know how you can put more into a film, or make one that's more deeply moving." (Stuart Klawans, The Nation)

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
