About the Project
Conceived as a lab, “Dis-Locations” proposes experiments with nonfiction film practices around de-stabilizing ideas of place and form. Through disassociation and disjoints, the team works with the idea of using disruptions as a means to formulate new connections, hence moving away from usual ideas of representation. Through a series of exhibits, the team invites the audience to re-consider place and form and our relationship with its possibilities.

This class has proven to be a precursor of somewhat to the realm of experimental film for me, my experience with experimental film being close to null, both watching and attempting to create. Priya showed us a few good examples to experimental film including a few of her own. This gave us a little bit of a stressor to go out and shoot our own. This class in reflection was though minimal and lacked apt structure proved to be a great first exposure to experimental film.
