Film Screening: Yesterday Ended Last Night (2022)
Directed by Oana Tenter and Delia Marinescu
In the Arizona desert, a community of Christian Romanians live in the fear that the socialism they left behind the Iron Curtain is making a comeback in their new home, America. Two women filmmakers travel the literal and emotional distance to understand how their fellow Romanians have turned far-right Americans. Threading a fine line between being accepted and rejected by the church members, the filmmakers process the ethics of their methodologies and ponder upon the purpose of their documentation. The project takes a close look at the intersection of politics and religion in the lives of a Romanian-American conservative Christian community in Arizona and weaves a multigenerational portrait of its members.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Exemplary films from the Social Documentation M.F.A. cohorts (2021 and 2022) rotate in an exhibition called Frames Per Second. The films document communities, cultures, issues, and individuals who are marginalized in the current landscape of representation, and reveal how the documentarians are working for social transformation. Find more information about the filmmakers here on the Sesnon Gallery website.
