COUSIN: Cycle 0

COUSIN: Cycle 0

“These films offer up a cornucopia of mind-bending approaches to imagining Indigenous futures.” –Artforum


The collective COUSIN was founded in 2018 by Alexandra Lazarowich, Adam Piron, Sky Hopinka, and Adam Khalil to provide support for Indigenous artists who expand traditional definitions and understanding of the moving image by experimenting with form and genre. To celebrate and impart their mission, the collective launched CYCLE 0, a curated program of select, previously non-commissioned films by COUSIN artists, sharing a survey of their aesthetic vision with diverse audiences. These works embody COUSIN’s ethos and represent a robust and provocative array of films by Indigenous artists involved in experimental and avant-garde cinema. Including works by Olivia Camfield and Woodrow Hunt, Raven Chacon, Fox Maxy and others, the program was screened at the Camden International Film Festival.

The Jack H. Skirball Series is organized by Bérénice Reynaud and Eduardo Thomas and funded in part by the Ostrovsky Family Fund, with special support provided by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
