All About

Source is a new series of film screenings and performances that maps the contours of our acoustic world by tracing its movements along the periphery of art and culture. Moving away from what has already been amplified and overexposed in mainstream media, Source turns its focus on less visible events that push the envelope of expression, assemble people and widen the scope of culture.
