Cinema Detroit and Detroit Narrative Agency (DNA) present Ethics & Aesthetics, an intentional space for films reflecting the concerns and lives of their makers, who are Black, Brown, Indigenous, Immigrant, Poor/Working Class, Queer, Trans*, non-binary, Women and Femme filmmakers. ⁣This season's theme is The Bodies We Belong To. Ultimately, belonging, or not belonging, to the various “bodies” in our lives — families, communities, politics, countries — informs our relationship with ourselves and others and the stories we tell. Intergenerational trauma and healing, healthcare justice, criminalization, spirituality, and ancestry/relationships with ancestors are among the themes addressed in these shorts, features, and performance pieces.
