Film Screening with Live ScoreSaturday February 4, 2023 | BCA Mills GalleryHIDE AND SEE is an experimental narrative film collaboration between Sam B. Jones and Mimi Bai that activates Bai’s clay and textile sculptures as shrouds for two ghostly figures. The two pursue and evade one another across time and space using camouflage and bushcraft techniques — while the film shifts between black and white and color, alternately concealing or revealing the ghosts within their environment. For this special screening, the film’s composer Zain Alam (Humeysha) will perform a blended live and recorded score in the BCA Mills Gallery. Hide and See – Trailer.
