Other Futures

Animistic Apparatus

​The experimental research of author, curator and teacher May Adadol Ingawanij focuses in particular on film, art and media in Southeast Asia. She will give a lecture about sacrificial rites for spirits that consist of film screenings, a number of which will be presented at Other Futures. After the Cold War, the American army left film projectors behind them in their hasty departure from Thailand. Those projectors are now being used to screen films for an audience consisting only of spirits. ‘Animistic Apparatus’ is a ritual screening for these ‘other spirits’.
