The Afterlight

Tuesday, May 31, 2022, 7:30 p.m., Dryden Theatre

(Charlie Shackleton, UK 2021, 82 min., 35mm)

Fragments of hundreds of films from around the world bring together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive. Together, they contend with a fragile existence lived solely through these traces of their work.

The Afterlight itself exists as a single 35mm film print. Further eroding every time it screens, the film is a living document of its life in circulation. Eventually, it will disappear entirely.

Followed by Q&A with the director and Curator of Film Exhibitions Jared Case.
