White Frame is pleased to present ‘My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been’, a film night curated by Chantal Molleur in collaboration with the Kunsthaus Baselland part of the exhibition ‘Histories of our Time. On collective and personal narratives’.
We all have stories to tell. Sharing stories helps us connect to each other, to our experiences and is often an invitation to step into unknown worlds. I thought of American photographer Diane Arbus who captured the private realities of life and her quote after looking at some of the works in this latest exhibition curated by Ines Goldbach. I gained insight into personal stories and they’re changing narratives from some of the artistic propositions in this exhibition.
For this fifth film night, I chose films that spoke about personal and collective stories coming from different parts of our world. In the past six months, I meet filmmakers and artists while attending some film festivals in Europe and in South America. Our encounters and their stories gave me a better understanding of their realities. Here are some of their stories bringing us closer.
