Here at the Bailey Theater revisits the history of watching disaster from a distance – an experience inextricably linked to cinema by the newsreel footage once screened at Theaters like the Bailey before each feature film. The piece reflects on contemporary shifts in how consume images of trauma, searching arrays of decentralized and contradictory sources still mediated by the same screen.
