Repeat screening Wednesday, August 18, 2021

Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Miguel Calderón’s El placer después (Pleasure Afterwards) (2019), streaming from Wednesday, July 21 through Tuesday, August 3, 2021.

Many of Miguel Calderón’s pieces integrate personal experiences by exploring encounters and objects that have marked his memory. Just after the earthquake of September 19, 2017 that struck Mexico City, Calderón established a close relationship with the maintenance staff of the Cibeles Fountain. The video narrates a series of events told by a real character who also reenacts them around this specific landmark.

El placer después (Pleasure Afterwards) is presented here as one of five films in Part Three | Interrelational Arrangements (Interdependency and Survival), the third of four programs in the online series Me, You, and Everyone We Know: Interrelationality, Alterity, Globalization programmed by Irmgard Emmelhainz for e-flux Video & Film. The series will run in four thematic parts from June 23 through August 18, 2021. Each part will include a two-week group screening, and a live discussion.
