Jean-Luc Godard's Sympathy for the Devil (1968) alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s, all while giving an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones' creative process in the recording studio. Godard is an acclaimed director whose approach to bridging politics and art in film has strongly influenced Adam Pendleton’s practice. Pendleton’s short film, Lorraine O’Grady: A Portrait, is an intimate look at the iconic black performance artist in recent years. It features O’Grady reciting a chronology of her artistic career.

All genres are welcome from experimental pieces to animated narratives, so there’s no telling where the night will go.
