Black Life: An Evening with Paige Taul
ruth gebreyesus, a writer and producer based in the Bay Area, is currently the cocurator of Black Life.
Black Life is thrilled to welcome Oakland-born filmmaker Paige Taul back to the East Bay for a screening and conversation about her work. Taul employs experimental cinema to, in her words, “engage with and challenge assumptions of Black cultural expression and notions of belonging.” Her filmmaking practice also “tests the boundaries of identity and self-identification through autoethnography to approach notions of racial authenticity in veins such as religion, style, language, and other Black community-based experiences.” This program includes films that reflect on personal histories, taste, and style, via the exploration and documentation of people, places, architectures, and accessories. Primarily shot in 16mm or super 8 film, Taul’s elegant works are bestowed with a timeless resonance.
