    The Congregation (9321 Rosa Parks Blvd, Detroit, MI 48206)

    Since 2020, COVID has taken the lives of over one million Americans. 40% of us lost someone. All of us have been impacted. In a culture that puts grief on a timeline, how can art help us process the pandemic's impact?

    Afterthought: Remembering a Pandemic
    is a feature documentary about art, grief, and healing in the wake of COVID. Our film spotlights artists and activists in Detroit and New York working to commemorate the pandemic's impact. Afterthought traces the evolution of two remarkable memorials over three years, following the grieving processes and creative processes of the people behind these projects. In documenting these stories, Afterthought memorializes lives lost and changed by COVID and celebrates the healing power of art.

    Join us for a screening of scenes from the film-in-progress, followed by conversation with the filmmakers and film participants. Hosted at The Congregation with support from Michigan Humanities, the Detroit Office of Arts Culture &Β Entrepreneurship, andΒ the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy.Β
