We Come From Earth, We Come From Space

Short Film

Sarah Sass Biscarra-Dilley, Anna Luisa Petrisko, Grace Rosario Perkins, and Adee Roberson. Black Salt embodies cultural and contemporary narratives. The work is cultural, but not “cultural” in the anthropological sense of the word, as cultural art is often seen through a Western lens. Black Salt calls on ancestral and embodied knowledge with the intention of creating a vibrant future in which complex identities can coexist. Originally a performance component, “We Come from Earth, We Come from Space” features footage from six hours of tape filmed on location throughout the Southwest and the homesites of one member. Black Salt Collective’s upcoming web based project will use non-linear and experimental narratives to create a working archive exploring themes such as creation stories, language, memory, and ritual. Music by Mother Popcorn and Jeepneys.
