“It For Others” screening w/ “Statues Also Die”

Michigan Theater (Main Auditorium)

Artist and filmmaker Duncan Campbell has taken Chris Marker and Alain Resnais’ 1953 film Les Statues meurent aussi (Statues Also Die) as both source and artifact, to pursue a meditation on the life, death and value of objects. It For Others, preceded by Marker and Resnais’ film, is a social and historical examination of cultural imperialism and commodity that combines filmed footage, animation and archival footage.
