Fort Nights: Magic

Spanning four weeks, Fort Nights: Magic will feature films through the different lenses of light, water, sky, the heart, and the unseen. Happening adjacent to Off the Grid, make it a night out and look for the Silent Disco booth to rent headphones for free, too. This Friday features the heart, “Prepare to be Unprepared,” a live performance and video from Constance Hockaday in FMCAC’s unique Firehouse space. “Prepare to be Unprepared” is a cinematic and performative lecture that includes a stream of associations exploring sandy beach survival strategies, homemade boats, linguistic investigations of the word “hope,” Wallace Steven’s poem: “Angel of Paisans,” and personal anecdotes, which come together to illustrate the terrifying and liberating ways people make sense of their lives in the age of disaster.
