DA FRINGES: Bare, Stained, Mojo: Da Floods | Screening and Conversation with Jeremy Kamal

Jeremy Kamal will be screening his latest short films, Bare and Stained, in addition to his piece exhibited in We Are Here, titled Mojo. Bare and Stained are animated shorts from the world of Mojo; a fictional future where landscapes are shaped by Black culture. Stained depicts the dream sequence of a rebellious tea master named Demetrius. Set in a fictional tea garden where gangs use colored flora to mark territory, the animation portrays Demetrius and his elder as he re-lives the memory of being reprimanded for his fascination with a blue herb; in defiance of the gang to which they belong. In a world where symbiotic relationships with technology enable Black Americans the godlike ability to transform geology, weather, and ecology, Stained is a small glimpse into the intimate life of one of its inhabitants. The piece re-frames gang culture as a landscape phenomenon and re-imagines those affiliated as environmental caretakers and tea makers.
