Ryan Family Film Series: Onyeka Igwe and Imani Nikyah Dennison

Thursday, April 11, 2024 7:00–8:00 PM


Join us for an evening dedicated to pushing the boundaries of conventional cinema and storytelling. Exploring ideas around exhaustion, genre, and reimagining form, this program features short films that inspired both Colgate/Flaherty Distinguished Global Filmmaker in Residence Onyeka Igwe and Flaherty programmer Imani Nikyah Dennison’s filmmaker practices. The screening will be followed by a conversation around pushing boundaries, rethinking history in unconventional ways, and examining the exhaustion of traditional historical narratives. This gathering promises an engaging dialogue on cinematic innovation, and narrative reinvention.Featuring: Seven Songs for Malcolm X (dir. Black Audio Film Collective, 1995), An Ecstatic Experience (dir. Ja'tovia Gary, 2015), and Apparition (dir. Ismaïl Bahari 2020). Onyeka Igwe’s residency is programmed by artist, curator, and filmmaker Imani Nikyah Dennison, and offered in collaboration with The Flaherty, a New York City-based nonprofit organization committed to documentary film.
