Please join us for “Life/Death and Afterlife,” an evening of films organized by the Flaherty and co-presented with Cabinet at Anthology Film Archives. The program, the last of six screenings in the annual Flaherty NYC series, comprises three films that explore the notion of ghosts as border-crossers and the extent to which their transmissions break down the distinctions between, and the inviolability of, physical and metaphysical bodies. The program includes:

Madame Mae Nang Nak (2014), directed by Kim Miller
The Cruz Brothers and Miss Malloy (1980), directed by Kathleen Collins
A Família do Capitão Gervásio (2014), directed by Tamar Guimarães & Kasper Akhøj

Kim Miller and Kasper Akhøj will be present for a post-screening discussion moderated by Deirdre Boyle, media critic, historian, and professor in the School of Media Studies at the New School.
