“Aftermath” considers the wake of conflict. Focused on the events that are set in motion by erasure, violence, displacement, inequity, and interpersonal tension, this series examines conflict through the lens of its fallout. What are the consequences of conflicts that are ongoing, systemic, or necessarily prolonged? What does it mean to exist in the liminal space between conflict and resolution, particularly in instances where neat solutions are improbable or simply impossible? The films presented in “Aftermath” explore these fraught dynamics through the accounts of individuals.
