Rhubaba Podcast, Episode #2 The Moon and a Submerged Village, a conversation with Andrew Black

Online Screening of Andrew Black’s Submerged Village, (2017).

Monday 6 July (screening available until Sunday 12 July)

Episode 2 features artist Andrew Black who will discuss his 2017 film, Submerged Village. The film uses the imagery of Pamela Coleman Smith’s version of the Moon Card from the Tarot deck as a reference point for generic landscapes that linked to Andrew’s research into friendships, community and thinking about what it means to have a home in a place from a queer embodied position. In the podcast we unpick the meanings and symbols on the Moon Card and discuss the ways these are portrayed within the film. We also talk about how the filmmaking process is suggestive of a Tarot reading in the sense that it explores a multitude of voices, storytelling, meanings and experiences that create moments that are simultaneously uncanny and related to everyday life experience.

We are delighted to be able to present Submerged Village as an online screening, available from 6th -12th July. If you would like to view the film please email info@rhubaba.org with “Submerged Village” as the subject line and we will send you the link to view. Captions are included.
