For Paradise (film screening and Q&A)
For Paradise is a hybrid documentary that traces the construction of racial identities within a family (the artist's own) where members operate on both sides of the “color line.” Allowing the story of her great-grandmother Paradise to guide her through complicated family histories of migration and racial passing, Webb navigates the spaces where power can be found in absence and loss.
