TJUBA TEN (THE WET SEASON) AND OTHER EXPERIMENTAL ETHNOGRAPHIES WITH BEN RUSSELL
Tjba Tn (The Wet Season) is an experimental ethnography recorded in the jungle village of Bendekondre, Suriname at the start of 2007. Composed of community-generated performances, reenactments and extemporaneous recordings, this film functions doubly as an examination of a rapidly changing material culture in the present and as a historical document for the future. Whether the resultant record is directed toward its subjects, its temporary residents (the filmmakers), or its Western viewers is a question proposed via the combination of long takes, materialist approaches, selective subtitling and a focus on various forms of cultural labor.

Ben Russell is an itinerant photographer, curator and experimental film/videomaker whose works have screened in spaces ranging from 14th-century Belgian monasteries to 17th-century East India Trading Company buildings, from police station basements to outdoor punt squats, from Japanese cinematheques to Parisian storefronts, and from the Sundance Film Festival to the Museum of Modern Art. Russell began the Magic Lantern screening seris in Providence, Rhode Island, and has made films about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, the exploration of Easter Island, Richard Pryor, and the end of the world.

In addition to Tjba Tn (The Wet Season), Russells screenings will feature three additional experimental ethnographies: Daum, The Red and the Blue Gods, and Black and White Trypps Number Three.
