Part 1 of 4. For a short review of our whole season, please click here.

2016 was a landmark year for film + media at Basilica.  From 24-HOUR DRONE once again warming up projectors and 1980s CRT TV monitors at the start of the season, to the wide variety of feature films in our annual Summer Screenings series (including a five-hour documentary about the US-led Iraq invasion of 2002 and visits from celebrated filmmakers), to a brand-new fall documentary series featuring timely takes on global issues alongside a story that hits close to home, to two new and FREE community screening series that brought Bollywood and classic kids’ flicks to local audiences, to Kiln Films, our steadfast-and-strange collection of under-the-radar films and videos installed inside Basilica’s former forge and foundry brick kiln, paid homage to cultural monoliths of the human and nonhuman variety.
