HIDE AND SEE is an experimental narrative film collaboration between Sam B. Jones and Mimi Bai that activates Bai’s clay and textile sculptures, transforming them into shrouds for two ghostly figures. The specters employ bushcraft and camouflage techniques as they pursue and evade one another across time and space, while the film shifts between black and white and color — alternately concealing and revealing the ghosts within their environment.
For this special screening, the film’s composer Zain Alam (Humeysha) will host an artist talk on his work, as well as perform a blended live and recorded score, followed by a conversation with Mimi Bai, Zain Alam, and Sam B. Jones.
