Remember When is a collection of short films that question the idealism and false innocence associated with “girlhood,” showing that young people don’t exist unaware or unaffected by larger power structures such as foreign policy, mass incarceration, divorce, or heteronormativity. Each of the stories features girls in roles beyond young caretakers, trophies, and sidekicks.
Remember When also explores the use of animation as a way of processing traumatic histories and memories as well as a way to play with our realities and reimagine power dynamics. Each film utilizes animation in a different way, some in combination with live action, but all share the common thread of using the form to evoke nostalgia and reflection.
This is not meant to be a comprehensive collection, but rather just a small snapshot. As curators, we want to acknowledge that there are so many ways that other parts of identity intersect with gender. What voices are missing from this line-up? We welcome suggestions from the audience and hope this series of films will serve as a conversation starter that will evolve and grow.
