In a constellation of new works, Laura Poitras takes viewers on a narrative journey through the landscape and through economic aspects and their future developments underlying the U.S. military’s growing presence in Sicily. Sicily is a linchpin in the United States’ military communications and drone operations worldwide. For over three decades, Sicilian citizens of all ages have fought to stop the construction of this infrastructure. Through a site-specific immersive installation, a film clinic with local filmmakers and reporting by Henrik Moltke, Laura Poitras collaborates with citizens and artists to create a work that lives beyond the timeframe of the event. Signal Flow is on view at Palazzo Forcella De Seta.
