About the Screening
Peyton Evans Artist in Residence (PEAR) Abrahams shares a selected body of film work starting with a 67-minute feature and three short films, followed by a talk and discussion. A lapsed South Floridian, Abraham is no stranger to off-kilter characters, bloody history or mysterious places—all of which make appearances in his films. The main theme, explored in the shorts collection, is the ethics of profiling people and subcultures that are fringe and controversial. Abrahams posits that societal outsiders and extreme experiencers, regardless of the veracity of their claims, can be a window into the workings of consciousness, and a bridge to heal ideological divides.
