Rooftop Cinema returns to the museum’s rooftop sculpture garden each Friday this June for its thirteenth season. This year Rooftop Cinema contemplates what a long, strange tyip it has been in the fifty years since 1968, and also showcases recent experimental works and hybrid documentaries.
Filmmakers Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil re-imagine an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations for the Ojibway community near Sault Ste. Marie in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
Films begin at sundown, approximately 9:30 PM. Rooftop Cinema is free for MMoCA members / $7.00 for non-members; admission begins at the lobby reception desk one hour before screen time. Screenings relocate to the lecture hall is rain is predicted.
