Director Q&A


In 2024, O Cinema ANYWHERE features "Alien" by Carla Forte, a collection of 20 AR video portraits documenting the important role of Latinas in our community. The works are planned for installation along Phase 1 of Miami's Underline, a 10-mile linear park, urban trail, and public art destination that transforms the land below Miami's Metrorail into a vibrant cultural landmark.

In September, award winning prolific filmmaker Carla Forte released Miki Maniaco, a dark, twisted vision of exile, celebrity, and South Florida and was named Best Film Director in 2023 by Miami New Times. She is a Venezuelan-born multidisciplinary artist based inMiami and an active member of Bistoury Physical Theater and Film, a non-profit organization whose mission is to carry out research and development while taking aesthetic and physical risks that break the pre-established boundaries between dance, theater, and film. Forte's project "Alien" involves identifying 20 Latinas from varying backgrounds and interviewing them about their migrations to Florida and their experiences living here. Breaking ground as a living, interactive, historical, and interpretive document, each portrait will be made accessible to the public via QR codes posted at different locations along the Underline.

O Cinema's ANYWHERE aims to play with AR's potential as a medium for public art, a vehicle for social commentary and as a platform for understanding. The project will bring new media artworks into the daily lives of residents and visitors alike to the Underline. Visitors will experience true stories of migrant women as they are interpreted through the lens of an artist.

"Alien" is in production now and will launch in the fall of this year. Opening event, conversations with the artist and the subjects, plus other festivities to be announced.

This exhibition is presently in production thanks to the generous support of CreARTE/Perez Family Foundation
