Other Uses 06
For the final episode of the yearlong film series Other Uses, three films chronicle the afterlives of sites that time has suspended, abandoned, or reclaimed.
Beatriz Santiago Muñoz captures the convergence of plants, animals, and the local Puerto Rican population in Ojos para mis Enemigos (Eyes for my enemies) as they covertly share a decommissioned US military base in Ceiba. Jorge Jácome’s Flores transforms the autonomous Portuguese Azores Islands into a landscape rendered uninhabitable by the proliferation of hydrangeas, and a man is stranded at a disused Olympic airport in Naeem Mohaiemen’s first fiction feature Tripoli Cancelled.
