    From a celebrated hoops prodigy to a self-reliant professional basketball star, from Baylor to the WNBA and overseas, Brittney Griner had a wild ride last year.

    MILWAUKEE UNDERGROUND FILM FESTIVAL: Enduring Ornament

    8:00 pmMilwaukee, WI

    Sourced from five found 16mm filmstrips once used in coin-operated peepshow booths on New York’s formerly seedy 42nd street, Enduring Ornament is a film that confronts the cinematic history of idealized patriarchal desire at its fundamental existence as celluloid. Making use of a salvaged industrial contact printer and chemical alterations applied directly to the subsequent photochemical prints, we have transformed these images from a privatized male experience into a primordial celebration of bodily spectacle. Threaded throughout the film is the exuberant compound word poetry of Baroness Elsa von Freytag Loringhoven, giving voice to an immediate and transgressive consciousness.
