The Smallest Unit Is Each Other, 35:25 min.
The Smallest Unit Is Each Other struggles for otherwise narratives regarding our interspecies planetary horizons ahead. Otherwise as in undergirded by Sylvia Wynter’s Third Event, wherein a third human evolution can mobilize our storytelling capacities out of familiar colonial paradigms of catastrophe, and Kamau Brathwaite’s request for poetry that breaks with this pentameter. Otherwise visualities, auralities, and stories that affirm life are presented against the backdrop of transnational calls to course correct our existence in this six-part film of animation, archival materials, interviews, speculative geographies and original screen performances, organized by “SIDE” in the form of a cassette tape.
