Rebekah Modrak’s short animated film The Implicit Jacques Panis was screened at the 7th Art Festival of Miami in Miami, Florida on October 21, 2018. The 7th Art Festival of Miami is a forum for “counterculture cultivators,” selecting films from independent artists and filmmakers from around the world.
The Implicit Jacques Panis is a re-creation of a pre-existing promotional video presenting a typical day-in-the-life of Shinola’s then-President Jacques Panis. A choreographed succession of hats on Panis’s head throughout the narrative exposes unspoken, oft-historical, expressions of power, allowing Panis to openly act out the roles implicitly suggested by the original video.
The film festival was held at The Center For Social Change on Sunday, October 21, 2018 from 1pm – 6:30pm. Modrak’s experimental short was screened during the first segment at 2:05PM.
