EPHRAIM ASILI: THE DIASPORA SUITE

Thursday, October 10 (7:30PM)
Co-presented by Aurora Picture Show and the University of Houston CLASS Initiative in Media and the Moving Image
Ephraim Asili in Attendance

Created over the course of seven years and shot on 16mm film in Brazil, Ethiopia, Ghana, Jamaica, Canada, and various parts of the United States, artist Ephraim Asili’s Diaspora Suite reveals resonances connecting the black American experience to the greater African diaspora. Both personal and global, both playful and powerfully moving, this cycle of five short films draws associations through rhythmic montage, unearthing complex connections and ironies along the way. Aurora is pleased to present the Houston premiere of these films with artist Ephraim Asili in attendance.
