And the Past Remains
By Poonam Dhir
Directed by Johanna Kasimow

An exploration of kinship, commitment and recollection. Using non-linear etches in time and a series of shared moments, the story of a family and a childhood unfolds. A dramatic event grounds this vulnerable account. Through memory, witnessing and intimate encounters, And the Past Remains explores ideas of duty, devotion and belief.

Please be advised this reading includes mentions of death, suicidal ideations, alcoholism, needles, sex, and nudity.

Guest Roundtable to follow.
