About the event

Open Secret  - new cinema screenings curated by Dana Dawud 

Hosted and Organized by Millenium Film Workshop, New York

Secrets serve as a fundamental condition for connecting with oneself and others. Bridging the gap between oral and written traditions, there exists a lineage of sensorial information in the form of images, sounds, and textures that historically extend into the "digital tradition." This digital tradition encompasses knowledge in a multiplicity of formats, transmitted from one node to the next, from one persona to another. Much of this knowledge is either lost or re emerges within new aesthetic contexts. Technology, functioning as an open secret accessible to all, forges invisible alliances and networks that flow together in mysterious and often unseen ways.

The feedback loop between the image and the artist, alongside the artist's continuous production of images, expands to address a multitude of concerns, technologies, and intellectual domains. This screening cultivates a space that promotes both the focused and attentive reception of new images and the exploration of innovative methodologies in the technologies of image creation. The show also embraces the blurred moments of non-seeing, the imperceptible glitch, and the darkness of the non-image. It equally values sound, silence, and listening as integral components of the technological open secret. By doing so, it actively resists the passivity associated with the infinite scroll of the digital landscape.

The Open Secrets features the works of  Dana Dawud, KIRAC ,  Machine Yearning, Y7, Redactedcut, Poorspigga, Sulaiman Majali, Carmen Llin, Xafya Lovecraft, Assi Abogado, Alex Mashtaler, Panos Aprahamian, Maria Lileonova, Anastasia A., Ai Dubai, Marble Index, and Zoey Solomon.

Between the screenings, an installation by the artist John-Robin Bold will feature website-specific and interactive videos with strange subtitles and other misused YouTube functions. 

The event will close with a live performance by emerging musician  Gabriel Hollis
