No Evil Eye

Curated by Rooney Elmi and Ingrid Raphael

We’re excited to help kick off this year’s Flyover Fest by hosting No Evil Eye, a new radical microcinema launched by Rooney Elmi and Ingrid Raphael.

The project aims to redefine the creative and social parameters of the Columbus film scene by screening a diverse and eclectic mix of works that examine the union between the personal and the political. Elmi is a critic, curator, and publisher of the film zine SVLLY(wood). Raphael is an educator, visual storyteller, and cofounder of The Grid Zine, a publication dedicated to black and brown immigrant and refugee narratives. (Program approx. 90 mins., digital video) Visit this page closer to the screening date for a complete program lineup.

Join fellow film fans at 6 PM in the lower lobby for a special Wex Hour reception featuring a cash bar, complimentary snacks, and a zine fair.

This event is presented in conjunction with The Flyover Fest, a fresh and inclusive arts festival featuring literature, film, music, panel discussions, and more in Columbus May 8–11. Visit theflyoverfest.com for a complete schedule.
