Andrea Arnold’s American Honey is a tender roadtrip showing a group of precarious teenagers trying to make their way through the world selling magazine subscriptions door to door. In the American heartland, we see Sasha Lane as Star in her struggle for “a struggle for independence in a situation of utter dependency”.
PRECARIOUS NIGHTS screens three films addressing this topic of precarity, precarization and precariousness, to understand our mutual dependencies and vulnerability and to unsettle hierarchical ideas of class formations. We will walk this slippery slope together with artists, researchers and activists who will introduce the films by means of performance, lecture or other delicate formats.
PRECARIOUS NIGHTS is a collaboration between WALTER books, Studium Generale ArtEZ and Focus film theater.
