Fragmented Landscapes Film Series: The Louisiana Landscape

New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

On four select Saturdays at 2 pm throughout the run of Inventing Acadia: Painting and Place in Louisiana, NOMA will screen a series of films curated by Maaike Gouwenberg of Deltaworkers collectively titled Fragmented Landscapes/Beyond Acadia. December 7 | New Ideas about Landscape December 14 | A Country That is Not of This World January 11 | Stories and Place January 18 | The Louisiana Landscape In a rapidly changing Louisiana, the natural landscape becomes part of daily life. The fluidity of the marshlands that grow from sediment brought by the Mississippi from the north, and the human interactions that change the course of that natural process, are a constant reminder of our presence in—and impact upon—the area. Fragmented Landscapes/Beyond Acadia presents films that focus on landscapes—films that present the landscape as a way to communicate ideas about representation, where the medium of film is the key to examining the landscape in relation to political histories. The films presented in Fragmented Landscapes/Beyond Acadia are linked to human interference, painful pasts, and the rule of law.
