Winter 2021 – Genre Reawakenings: Experimental Horror Shorts

PWYC Rental from April 21 to 28, 2021

Closing Q&A moderated by Mariam Bastani (Rue Morgue) Wed., April 28, 7 pm EST

To reawaken a genre is a type of resurrection. In horror, such resurrections—whether by magic or experiment—never go according to plan, often bringing the haunted or concealed into plain focus. The transgressive or painful results of these confrontations are irrevocably lingering, if not transformative. This program is both a celebration of and commentary on horror; a genre with the capacity to uniquely underscore political and aesthetic concerns. The artists featured here reconfigure the formal and thematic conventions of narrative horror films with an urgency that reminds viewers: when one entity is reawakened, it is rarely alone.

Curated by Pleasure Dome Board Director Katherine Connell. Co-presented by Rue Morgue.
