Coronaura

Still from “Coronaura” depicting silhouetted protestors composited over a forest fire.

An essayistic short film meditating on the challenges of solidarity at a time when a pandemic, a collapsing climate, and an ongoing racial reckoning have laid bare White complicity in violence, both fast and slow. Layering found images and texts with animation and personal narration, the film is an intimate working through of the events of 2020, their long prehistory, and the possible futures just coming into view.
