The Pompano Beach Cultural Division is proud to announce an exciting new film series that will that will provide a platform for emerging filmmakers to engage a local following. Montage will feature curated film screenings, industry networking events, workshops, artist talks and panel discussions. The film series will take place on the last Thursday of each month and will rotate among The Pompano Beach Cultural Center, Bailey Contemporary Arts and The Historic Ali Cultural Arts.

The May film is Caressed from Niki Lopez, whose artwork was featured last year at an exhibition at Ali Cultural Center.

“This short film ‘Caressed’ is an art film and a self-portrait, mixed-media video installation combining performance art and a poem I wrote about a traumatic childhood memory,” explained Lopez, who was featured in People magazine regarding her growing up in a cult and the ensuring abuse. “This intimate piece is a part of series with my personal artwork within the art movement: What’s Your Elephant – Creative Conversations about the Unknown.”

The intentions behind Lopez’ work is to not only share a personal elephant but to have discussions surrounding unspoken topics such as abuse, survivors of abuse, awareness, the power of a ‘share’ and how the arts can be used to heal, to empower and to educate.

This session will consist of a video screening, performance and artist lead discussion based on the mission of “What’s Your Elephant.”
