Join the Seaport Museum and Justice Jamal Jones for a captivating screening of their film essay, Notes on a Siren, which intertwines black and African spirituality and offers a thought-provoking narrative on transformation. Jones will introduce the film and La Sirène, a mermaid from Haitian Vodou. Together we will see how through this work, the siren becomes a vessel to explore archetypes of modern Black Queerness and Transness, and a powerful symbol serving as a portal for transformation and transcendence. Sign up today to hear Jones share the inspiration, research, and discoveries that shaped this groundbreaking 14-minute film. The evening will include a performance in which Jones will present their personification and embodiment of the siren through movement and artistic expression. A Q&A and reception with complimentary beverages will follow. Content is appropriate for anyone ages 12 and up. Advanced registration is encouraged for this free event but walkups will be accommodated as possible.
