Event Description


Artist & Filmmaker Millicent Johnnie 
Conversation Moderated by Surinder Martignetti 


Millicent Johnnie produces different forms of storytelling using various mediums and platforms, centering Black and Indigenous cultural communities. Where Water is Not Thirsty is a short film that follows a seventy-year-old woman, who returns to the magical world of her mind, where she reunites with her mystic self and learns of her true unbridled nature.

Join See Chicago Dance's latest program, Screendance Club: a radically casual watch-party and discussion of short dance films. Different from a typical talk-back, Screendance Club aims to create an environment of open conversation and exploration--with artists, filmmakers, and viewers on an equal footing. SCD writers curate and facilitate conversations on viewing and interpreting dance on screen.
