Pleasure Dome is pleased to co-present the Toronto screening of Juma Pariri’s film Pe ataju jumali/Hot Air (Ar Quente). This is the Canadian premiere of the Indigenous artist’s experimental short film. This event is presented in partnership with OCAD Graduate Studies and York University’s Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean, Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts & Technology, the Centre for Feminist Research, and the Hemispheric Encounters Network. Reception with Juma Pariri to follow.
This online program features ten new works by media artists and filmmakers working across Canada and internationally, including Iran, Mexico, Egypt, Croatia, the US, and the Netherlands. With works ripe with both humor and the vagaries of frustration and grief, this screening invites audiences to reflect on the nuances of “nature,” changing environmental and social ecosystems, and the relationships between ourselves and others—both beings and materials.
Pleasure Dome is pleased to announce the 2023 iteration of our highly-anticipated annual screening series “New Toronto Works,” which will return to an in-person screening this fall for the first time since before the pandemic! Please join us in viewing ten new works made in the past year by artists and filmmakers who are based in the Greater Toronto Area. A number of the artists will be present at the screening and will take part in a post-screening Q&A.
