LIFT co-presents Redacting Bodies: Local Shorts Program
at the 2018 Images Festival

Co-presented in partnership with Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT), MANO-RAMO and the8fest

Curated by Alexandra Gelis

If redaction is a process of editing documents, in which the removal of sensitive information is typically replaced with black rectangles—an act of sanitization for documents to circulate to a broader audience—then this removal of what cannot be shared renders every document radically incomplete.

On occasion, the persons performing the redaction, the redactors, add brief elements of their own, covering and uncovering. The works in this program deal with radical interrogations of power, the body, the collective, the political, and the land, inviting different sensibilities to this fundamental recognition, and re-representation of incompleteness.
