The Museum of Modern Art will present a weeklong theatrical run of films by Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas at The Museum of Modern Art screening daily from September 2nd through September 8th. Presented in conjunction with the current exhibition Projects: Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas, this film series celebrates a pair of artists whose work together exists in solidarity with movements at the forefront of the struggle for territorial sovereignty and the building of cultural and environmental memory.

The Teachings of the Hands, the central work in this program, is a powerful experiment in collaboration, bringing Carolina Caycedo and David de Rozas together with Mancias in a years-long research endeavor that weaves archival footage, reenactments, and archaeological artifacts. Each screening will also include two short films: Caycedo’s Apariciones/Apparitions, in which the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens overtaken by dancers who embody several Afro-Latine and Indigenous spiritual practices, and de Rozas’s GIVE, which challenges traditional approaches to documentary filmmaking, using experiments in editing and sound to explore the motivations behind Roland Gordon’s creation of a monumental visual archive of Black achievement in San Francisco.
