Jaaji Approx. / The Violence of a Civilization Without Secrets #305

Sunday, July 10, 11:00 pm on FNX National

Duration: 0:26:49

Description: Jaaji Approx. - Logging and approximating a relationship between audio recordings of my father and videos gathered of the landscapes we have both separately traversed. The initial distance between the logger and the recordings, of recollections and of songs, new and traditional, narrows while the images become an expanding semblance of filial affect. Jaaji is a near translation for directly addressing a father in the Hocak language. The Violence of a Civilization Without Secrets - An urgent reflection on indigenous sovereignty, the undead violence of museum archives, and post-mortem justice.
