“All of our grievances are connected”: An Interview with The Illuminator Collective
Eli Horwatt & The Illuminator Collective
Eli Horwatt has worked as the International Programmer at the Hot Docs International Documentary Film Festival and as a programmer at The Toronto International Film Festival. He is a visiting assistant professor of Film and Media studies at Colgate University. The Illuminator is an art-activist collective comprised of visual artists, educators, filmmakers, and technologists living and working in New York City. The collective has staged hundreds of projection-interventions in public spaces, transforming the street from a space of passive consumption and transit into a site of engagement, conflict, and dialogue. Our work calls attention to the many urgent crises that confront us, in support of the ongoing struggle for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world.
