Festival Details - "Revival!"...

Start: Sunday, November 22, 2020 3:00PM
End: TBD

Part dance party, part live video art performance, Revival! is a celebration of the visual and sonic frequencies that are contained within and spill out of Black ecstatic experiences. Using two turntables and a mixer, Philadelphia based artist Rashid Zakat will live-edit an archive of personal and public films, found footage and animation to produce a spontaneous and thoughtful audio-visual narrative. These images and sounds marry and multiply to tell textured stories of African cultural retention, the relationship between survival and faith, and the collective creative strategies of adaptation, joy, and mutual aid embedded in Black life and history in the Americas. Rashid Zakat is a filmmaker and artist based in Philadelphia. He uses video, photography, design, audio and the web to encourage people to find as much beauty, joy and wonder as possible. Professionally Rashid has a 15 year long career as a director and cinematographer for non-fiction, experimental films and music videos. He has done work for India.Arie, Carmelo Anthony, Black Thought, The Philadelphia Museum of Art, BlackStar Film Festival, Soul Train, Topic, WHYY, Philadelphia Contemporary, Mural Arts, Rashaad Newsome & BET to name a few. His personal work includes short documentary, iPhone and traditional portrait projects, visual mixtapes, digital publications, video installation, open mics & dance parties that experiment with visuals.
