The Esker film screenings series respond to and reflect on our current exhibitions. We round out the series this summer with a double bill featuring: 'Raymond' and 'Time and Time and Again' (Dir. Ragnheiður Gestsdóttir and Markús Þór Andrésson, 2014, 48 mins.).

Yuen asks her father to name all the people he knows who have died. She pairs each name with a branch, a seed, a flower, or an organic fragment that has fallen to the street in a rainstorm. The names describe the history of immigration to Hawaii through the sugar cane plantations that brought Yuen's ancestors to the islands. The plants are also migrants: they came to Hawaii in the jet stream, a high elevation wind corridor that carries species over the ocean for hundreds of miles.

Dir. Nina Yuen, 2015, 11 mins.

Free. Registration recommended.
