PHONE 914.788.0100

A special evening of experimental video art presented by the Peekskill Film Festival and organized by Michael Barraco of HVCCA
BLACKOUT presents a cinematic screening of short films which reinterpret the stage as a site of catharsis, self reflection, and political action. The program takes its title from the theatrical convention of the blackout. Between acts the lights go dark and the audience becomes temporarily blind and the set transforms. In this moment of media blackouts, political corruption, and widespread violation of human rights; revealing hidden narratives through through the arts continues to be of the upmost importance.
