In celebration of Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator's 20th Anniversary, a special screening of Robert Adanto's City of Memory will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016 at O Cinema Wynwood . Tickets are $15.00 and proceeds will support local visual artists.
City of Memory explores the ways in which the cataclysmic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina became imprinted on the memory of visual artists who lived through them. The film documents the unique ability of New Orleans’ artists to react when faced with catastrophe. From what looked like the death of a great American city emerged a generation of artists whose energy might prove a source of renewal for the rest of the world.
The film features artists Rontherin Ratliff and Rondell Crier, two alumni of DVCAI's award-winning residency program, as well as Deborah Luster, Tameka Norris, Dawn DeDeaux, Miranda Lake, Gina Phillips, Hannah Chalew, John Woodin, Samuel Portera, Jennifer Shaw, Kevin Kline, EPaul Julien, Elizabeth Kleinveld, Jan Gilbert, Jana Napoli, and David Spielman.
