Fluid Frontiers (2017)
Thursday, October 25, National Gallery of Art
Runtime: 23 min
This is the fifth and final film in “The Diaspora Suite,” an ongoing series of 16mm films exploring Ephraim Asili’s relationship to the African diaspora. Shot along the Detroit River border region, Fluid Frontiers explores the relationship between concepts of resistance and liberation exemplified by the Underground Railroad (the Detroit River being a major terminal point), and more modern resistance and liberation movements represented by Dudley Randall’s Detroit-based Broadside Press, as well as the installation, sculptural, and performance works of local Detroit artists.
