SELECTIONS & SELECTORS FILM SERIES LAUNCHES IN DETROIT FEATURING N’KISI CONCORDE DOCUMENTARY
PLAYGROUND DETROIT is thrilled to host the private screening of the magical documentary film N’kisi Concorde to kick off the beginning of Selections + Selectors film series at The Carr Center! We just got back from our NYC screening of the film at The Wythe Hotel and left a room full of New Yorkers mesmerized. [Check our photo album of the event here.] We are very pleased to be bringing this film series from NYC to share with Detroit. All of the documentaries in the series have a similar themes of urbanism, creativity, art, and counter-culture spirit.
N’kisi Concorde is a documentary feature set in Detroit by Nikki Sass and Brittin Richter that investigates the lives and work of two local ‘outsider artists’ and visual storytellers, Olayami Dabls and Dmytro Szylak, whose extraordinary installations reflect the power of the imagination unbound by artistic conventions or popular tastes. The film was recently featured as a part of the Freep Film Festival and screened at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
The panel for the evening will include:
Olayami Dabls, African Bead Museum
Derek Weaver, Grand River Creative Corridor-Detroit
Mitch Cope, Design99/Powerhouse Productions/Ride It Sculpture Skatepark
Andrew Stencil, member of the Art Directors Club Detroit chapter.
The evening will close out with an all vinyl set by DJ LADY FANTASTIC of Nothing Elegant.
