Lecture + Screening

5:00 – 8:30 pm

“Power relations lay at the core of normative representations. In the tuning in with the forces of a life event, one can say that form is attained only to address the formless. Reality in its social and historical dimension is not a material for artistic reflection or political commitment; it is what powerfully draws one to cinema and yet cannot be captured without dissolving itself in its fragile essence when one approaches it without subtlety and vulnerability.”


Please join us for a special public screening and lecture by Trinh T. Minh-ha. The event will begin with a public screening of Trinh T. Minh-ha’s film Shoot for the Contents (1991, 101 minutes) from 5 to 6:40 pm, followed by a public lecture at 7 pm.


This distinguished lecture is part of the COMS50 events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Department of Communication Studies at Concordia University. It is co-sponsored by the Feminist Media Studio and the Canada Research Chair in Feminist Media Studies (Professor Krista Geneviève Lynes), the Canada Research Chair in Game Studies and Design (Professor Mia Consalvo), and the Concordia University Research Chair in Mobile Media Studies (Professor Kim Sawchuk).
