Louis Henderson will share his 2018 film Bring Breath to the Death of rocks (34min) and following the screening he will be in conversation with Jonathan P. Watts.

Henderson is a filmmaker who experiments with different ways of working with people to address and question our current global condition defined by racial capitalism and ever-present histories of the European colonial project.

Since 2017, Henderson has been working within the artist group The Living and the Dead Ensemble.

Based between Haiti and France, the group focus on theatre, song, slam, poetry and cinema and its first feature film, Ouvertures, was awarded a FIPRESCI special mention at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival 2020.

Henderson’s work has been shown at various international film festivals, art museums and biennials and is distributed by LUX, Video Data Bank and Phantom, and produced by Spectre. He lives and works in Paris and Berlin.

This is an Of & By event, a series of artist talks, screenings and discussions organised by the contemporary art critic Jonathan P. Watts.

All the previous ASSEMBLY ONLINE events are now available to watch on The Assembly House Trust’s website.
