Description

Bushwick Community Darkroom will host a night of visual art, live music, story telling and more - with the theme of sense, sensibility and sensory experience. We will be showing a special film Ask About War is a 26 min documentary by Vladic Ravich about the thoughts and feelings about the conflict over Nagorno Karabakh. By using anonymous audio recordings, this project surfaces hidden or suppressed opinions. These are played back to fellow citizens, farmers, academics, children, elders as well "the enemy" in Tsopi, a small village in the Republic of Georgia. Aesthetic experimentation cannot prevent violence, but it can be a surprising resource for expressing a fuller spectrum of human experience. As outsiders to those lands, I don't think we'll be getting to the bottom of blame or history. But the goal is to make these conflicts less abstract through aesthetic means. Narrative journalist Vladic Ravich covered the "rural beat" of the South Caucasus and Central Asia for many years as a writer, photographer, audio producer and documentary producer, with work appearing in The Believer Magazine, The Globe & Mail, Voyager Magazine, CNN, EurasiaNet, and the Cruising Club of America, as well as many local newspapers. Cofounder of the Taxi Taxi Podcast ("This American Life for the Former Soviet Union")
