AMEND

'Amend'; an afro-futurist short film about Black male fragility told through the lens of societal and governmental injustice. Set in the architectural marvel, MAK Center's Rudolph Schindler House, the film employs archival and contemporary footage as three male dancers perform the arch of one man’s life, from boyhood to manhood. Haunted by the memory of their ethereal matriarch, the central figure navigates growing-up and historical neglect through dance, interview, and fashion design.
