Mariah Garnett: Documentary Appropriation Fiction
Kicking off our Breaking Codes series of emerging artists and emerging forms is Los Angeles based filmmaker and performer Mariah Garnett. Garnett blends documentary, narrative and experimental filmmaking practices to make work that accesses existing people and communities beyond her immediate experience. Using source material that ranges from found text to iconic gay porn stars, Garnett often inserts herself into the films, creating cinematic allegories that codify and locate identity.
In addition to screening her work, Mariah will be conducting a free workshop on Saturday, February 22 from 10:30am-1:30pm.
