An artist talk by filmmaker / media artist / activist Jason DaSilva. Mr. Da Silva is the director of the award-winning film When I Walk (2013), which played at VIFF two years ago. Using the chronology of the past ten years, DaSilva explains how his work shifted thematically after he was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis at the age of twenty-five. By examining his video pieces, he analyzes the relationship between disability and identity through the lens of his personal perspective and art. DaSilva will show excerpts of his past work, and a preview of AXS map project happening in Vancouver Saturday, September 19th.

“One of the year’s best films. An urgent, illuminating dive into the headwaters of second-wave feminism. Wise, moving, upsetting, and sometimes funny. That defiant sisterhood changed the workplace, our sexual politics, our language. She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry is the best filmed account of how that happened you could ever expect to see.”

Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice
