Film screening & discussion
“The Long White Cloud”
The Open Practice Committee presents a screening of Department of Visual Arts faculty member William Pope.L's new film The Long White Cloud. Created as part of a larger project, Te Tuhi, on site in Auckland, New Zealand in 2013, the work is informed by a series of interrelated enquiries including an attempt to find solidarity between the national and the individual, a search for clarity in a 'post-race' culture as it supposedly exists in the U.S. and New Zealand today, to question what is such a culture and what does it feel like? It also explores the impossibility of truly connecting to another's situation or history.
