The Ark: Virtual Film Premiere & Discussion

Hosted by Well of Wills

The Ark: Virtual Film Premiere & Discussion
The Ark is a 20 minute hybrid documentary that weaves intimate experimental video diaries with lyrical performance to examine the magnitude of our collective loss in one year of the pandemic.

In April 2020, Well of Wills began to create and collect video diaries that would reflect the longing, grief and isolation of the early weeks of the pandemic. The Ark collages together 26 of these microfilms to ask the question, “On the other side of this, who will we become?”

We look forward to the premiere of The Ark as an occasion to reunite virtually and share this collective creation with our community.
