WRITE IT SPEAK IT MOVE IT: Rita Munus screening
Wed 11 Sep 2019 / 7:00pm
Sop from Rita Munus in collaboration with Charlotte Procter (LUX) present a screening event as part of the Write It Speak It Move It project. The screening is an attempt to describe the complex relationship between a life lived with chronic illness and medical institutions; including diagnoses, medications and medicalised narratives which often simplify the sick person’s sense of self and agency.
The films chosen present contrasts to formalised routes of medical care and instead draw on friendship and the informal structure of mutual care and support given from our chosen family – our friends, which often passes unacknowledged but can be life saving. The screening will include works by Carolyn Lazard, Anne McGuire, Rosalind Nashashibi and Romily Alice Walden amongst others.
This is a relaxed screening, This means that if you tic, shout or move about, you’re more than welcome. Please contact Cubitt if you have any particular access needs by phone 208 7278 8226 or email [email protected] Cubitt is fully wheelchair accessible and there are wheelchair accessible toilet facilities. Assistance dogs are welcome in all spaces.
