The series continues with a workshop hosted by the artist and filmmaker Ephraim Asili, whose filmmaking practice engages with the different facets of the African diaspora – and his own place within it. His documentaries explore the interconnected nature of politics, aesthetics and activism.

Workshop: Documentary, Diaspora & the Archive
Drop in, registration isn’t required. Free and open to all.

This workshop gives participants an opportunity to engage with the documentary filmmaking practice of Ephraim Asili. Often inspired by his day-to-day wanderings, Asili creates art that situates itself as a series of meditations on the every day and the fragmented cultural identities that coalesce in today’s world. Asili’s films put forward a strong statement on the history and evolution of Black activism that are both formally and politically innovative. This workshop will give shape to Asili’s creative process, with a focus on the use of archival materials in his work. It is the intention of the workshop to allow participants to learn about process, practice and form in a collaborative way with the artist. Ephraim Asili is an African-American artist, filmmaker, writer, activist, DJ and traveler whose work focuses on the African diaspora as a cultural force.

Co-curated by Brandon Hocura and Hilary Jay

Ephraim Asili’s visit is in collaboration with the Department of Film & Media at Queen’s University and made possible by the Chancellor Dunning Trust Visitorship.
