This event was rescheduled from its original date of Thursday, November 15.

Director/Artist Stanya Kahn is scheduled to be present.

Fast-paced, personal, and urgent, Stand in the Stream weaves together the narrative of Kahn’s activist mother’s physical and mental deterioration and death, the birth of Kahn’s son, and Kahn’s own role as a mother and child— all amidst the changing political landscape. The narrative lines shift from macro to micro in one breath, marrying intimate family-movie footage with live streams from Tahrir Square, protests at Standing Rock, and Trump’s inauguration. Shot on multiple cameras and formats, the film itself is a document of the ever-changing digital medium.
