Go-Rilla Means War by Crystal Z Campbell

Today Damien-Adia Marassa and I went to the Visual Studies Workshop to see “an installation and screening of Go-Rilla Means War by artist and writer Crystal Z Campbell. Featuring 35mm footage salvaged from a now demolished black civil rights theater in Brooklyn, New York, Go-Rilla Means War is an experimental short that merges fact and fiction. The film is a relic of gentrification, and highlights the complex intersections of development, cultural preservation, and erasure in the form of an intricately woven parable and celluloid frames weathered by decades of urban neglect.” It’s on until tomorrow. Check it out.
