The resurrection of an archive of decaying film reels, shot during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary period in Guinea-Bissau, serves as the starting point for an archaeology of lost futures. Portuguese artist Filipa César collaborated with Bissau- Guinean filmmakers Sana Na N’hada and Flora Gomes, who were part of a group sent to Cuba to study filmmaking during the revolution and later tutored by Chris Marker, to organize and document the archive’s dissemination through a series of screenings, both in Europe and its country of origin. Rather than seeking to reconstitute the archive as a rarefied object restored to its original state, the material in Spell Reel is treated as an active element, a link not only to the past but to a revolutionary futurity whose charge it still holds.

Guest curated program by Alexandra Gelis
If redaction is a process of editing documents, in which the removal of sensitive information is typically replaced with black rectangles—an act of sanitization for documents to circulate to a broader audience—then this removal of what cannot be shared renders every document radically incomplete.
On occasion, the persons performing the redaction, the redactors, add brief elements of their own, covering and uncovering. The works in this program deal with radical interrogations of power, the body, the collective, the political, and the land, inviting different sensibilities to this fundamental recognition, and re-representation of incompleteness.
