While some emergencies are limited, personal, and every day, others split our lives open in ways that might not be easily fixed and leave no ‘before’ to return to. These films are stories of such emergencies or ‘ruptures’ and how they shape our ‘afters.’ But don’t be deceived, sometimes this world must come to an end for another one to be possible.

In Conversation with Val Bah: Long Time Comin’
When Dionne Brand’s Long Time Comin’ premiered in 1993, it was a fresh, compellingly lyrical portrait of two Black lesbian artists, posed on the crest of a wave of a cultural revolution. It was – and still is -a very singular film. Almost 30 years later, Black queer artist, writer and programmer, Valérie Bah explores the film and its lasting legacy in conversation with Nya Lewis, Johanna Mabaki and Malique Lee Moore. Like the film itself, this panel is an event not to miss.
