7th Annual SF Urban Film Fest
This program seeks to examine the questions of the purpose of monuments, memorials, and sites of gathering in our cities. If memorials and monuments are how we share and shape a collective narrative, how are certain narratives being told? In what ways can memorials and rituals be a space of joy, to generate new ways of what we want to see in the future and to make these practices active sites of reconciling the truth about our past. Looking at memorials for Jews killed in the Holocaust, who America decides to memorialize and overlook, as well as murals for Black lives and other more ephemeral modes – these films and discussion ask us to reckon with how we create space and time for mourning that can be inspiration for a more just future.
