Inspired by abuses in Argentina's dictatorial past but maintaining a global perspective, Hidden highlights the art of suppressed personal ideologies, experiences, and memories. Director Miguel Baratta dissects the morphology of design and the potential to resurrect hidden stories through physical objects from the bones of victims of the Mapuche genocide to the remnants of songs written by Holocaust prisoners. Hidden opens windows into the past while considering the possibilities of art to transcend oppression in the future.
Screens with Space Needle: A Hidden History
(BJ Bullert, US, 2019, 18 min)
Space Needle: A Hidden History unfolds like a mystery to create a new origin story of this icon of the region, tracing the creative inspiration for the Needles shape back to a wooden sculpture called The Feminine One. The film connects dance, art, and architecture, and explores the creative legacies of architect Victor Steinbrueck and Seattle-born African-American dancer, Syvilla Fort.
