Join us for two special screenings of ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL (Illusions of Control) at the Forest City Film Festival, a stunning film following five women across the globe as they find the means to survive in a world decimated by human activity.
There will be two screenings of the film –
October 26th at 12:30pm at the Imagine Cimenas – Citi Plaza
October 27th at 12:30pm at the Wolf Performance Hall
A riveting meditation on resilience in the face of disaster, ILLUSIONS OF CONTROL unfolds in landscapes irrevocably shaped by human attempts to dominate them. Five women confront unbearable crises: Silvia searches for her missing daughter in the deserts of northern Mexico; Yang attempts to hold back the expanding desert in China; Kaori mobilizes mothers as citizen-scientist to monitor radiation in Fukushima, Japan; Stacey builds on Indigenous knowledge to confront toxic legacies in Yellowknife; and, Lauren stands at the crossroads of a terminal cancer diagnosis in Chicago. Each story reveals surprising ways to live on, and reimagine life in the ruins.
