MARATHON SCREENINGS is a series of salon-style film & video presentations that invites international and LA-based artists to share their work and engage in meaningful dialogue. Taking place at a residence or nonprofit art space, each screening includes a communal dinner and open conversation with the artist and visiting moderator. The program includes films that range from short, conceptual videos to feature-length experimental documentaries, as well as performances and lectures. Intimate and thoughtful, the gatherings allow for invited artists to connect with attending participants and generate critical discussions while sharing a meal. Highlighting minority voices, the films uncover issues surrounding individual identity, representation, and historical consciousness in a shifting geopolitical landscape.  

The series is produced by independent curator Asha Bukojemsky. BIO here
