Film Screening: Ghosts of Lost Futures

Saturday, May 22, 3:00 p.m.

Ten films commissioned by the G. William Jones Film and Video Collection
Ghosts of Lost Futures features new video works by 10 artists commissioned by the G. William Jones Film and Video Collection. Each artist was given access to the same cache of footage from the WFAA Newsfilm Collection shot in Dallas in 1970, the year of the archive’s founding. The artists were given complete freedom in how they reinterpreted the footage and its historical context. The resulting works are profound meditations on mourning, melancholy, disaster, and various reinterpretations of the events of 2020 and 2021 through images of Dallas’s past.
