Lost Head and the Bird Image

Lost Head & the Bird

ALT | Modes

Evolving from photo essay to multi-platform installation, Hura’s poetic essay film examines facets of India’s unseen sexual, religious and political violence. Escalating to a raucous flurry of intimacy with its photographed subjects, Lost Head & the Bird meanders through the dark recesses of rural life for the people on the fringes. A word of caution to sensitive viewers, this film contains flashing lights that could trigger seizures.

Screens in program MODES 1

After the screening on Sunday, Oct. 7, please join us for light refreshments after a short walk to our community partner’s head office, HCMA Architecture + Design (400-675 West Hastings). Starting at 4:00pm, HCMA will lead a discussion around some of the themes and issues brought to light in MODES 1. Director and installation artist, Dimitri Venkov (Hymns of Muscovy) will join us via Skype from Moscow to take a deeper dive into his work.
