PAMM celebrates June's Miami Film Month with several art-focused films playing throughout the galleries. See them now before the month is up! 

Stan Douglas: Luanda-Kinshasa
Stan Douglas (b. 1960, Vancouver) examines how films and photographs influence our understanding of history utilizing live actors, costumes, props, and sets to render real and imagined scenes from the past. Luanda-Kinshasa (2013)—jointly acquired by PAMM and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art—depicts a fictitious band of professional musicians at the famed CBS 30th Street Studio in 1970s New York City.

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz: A Universe of Fragile Mirrors 
Filmmaker and video artist, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz (b. 1972, San Juan) documents specific communities and public sites to create works that make connections between experimental film, ethnography and theater, alluding to material, local and symbolic histories. In these pieces she generates her own bricolage―an alternative story about a popular Haitian market, a toxic tropical flower or a newly discovered archeological site in Puerto Rico. 

Doris Salcedo’s Public Works
This 25-minute video documents Doris Salcedo’s site-specific and large-scale public projects, highlighting the artist’s interest in inserting her sculptures directly into public spaces and public consciousness. The film combines archival footage and photography with interviews with Doris, her studio assistants and gallerists, organized around a chronological narrative that showcases elements of Salcedo’s philosophy, biography and studio practice.
