Beatriz Santiago Muñoz presents the world premiere of her new film on anarchism “Flowers of Antimony”.
Last November, Puerto Rico-based Beatriz Santiago Muñoz presented the world premiere of her new film "Flowers of Antimony" at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
Santiago produced “Flowers of Antimony” over the course of last fall’s Capp Street Project artist-in-residence program at the CCA Wattis Institute, working with a number of Bay Area anarchist and radical-leftist individuals and groups, including the Long Haul (based in South Berkeley) and Free Radio Berkeley (a now-silenced alternative radio station).
CCA Wattis Institute says of her project:
“Her film explores the complex issue of anarchism and how it has evolved from its original incarnation—a group-centered, utopian practice—to encompass a variety of strategies, from tree-dwelling protests to veganism to open-source computing, enacted by individuals with diverse motivations who come together for specific activities and moments.
