Broad Underground Film Series: Infrastructuralisms
"Infrastructuralisms" examines the poetics and politics of infrastructure across a range of experimental films and videos. Challenging the tendency of infrastructure to recede from view until its catastrophic failure, this event focuses on films that make visible the buried networks, systems, and substrates that make everyday life possible. This series is an ongoing collaboration between the Broad MSU, Film Studies program, and Department of English at MSU. This year’s partnering venues include The Robin Theatre in REO Town and (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing. Stay tuned for information on our season finale at Abrams Planetarium!

Broad Underground Film Series Season Finale: Space in the Brain
This is it—the one you’ve been waiting for! Space in the Brain addresses the intersection of cosmic exploration and pictorial abstraction in the cinematic avant-garde. Using methods from hand-painted film to pioneering computer animation, artists have taken inspiration from the Space Race of the 1960s to create new depictions of mental interiority. This series is an ongoing collaboration between the Broad MSU, Film Studies program, and Department of English at MSU. This year’s other partnering venues include The Robin Theatre in REO Town and (SCENE) Metrospacein East Lansing.
