Kahlil Joseph’s mesmerizing news-creation machine is a soulful and rousing intervention into the current epidemic news addiction powered by the “news-industrial complex.” Rejuvenating what news can be, BLKNWS combines appropriated news and social media with originally produced anchored segments to create a continuously updated broadcast that is as much a news service as it is a portal to an elevated state of awareness. “A fugitive newscast,” BLKNWS is only accessible at specific terrestrial sites.

Ongoing broadcast installations can be seen at Filmmaker Lodge and the Festival Co-op.

BLKNWS newsreels will also run at 11 art-house cinemas around the country:
Belcourt Theatre—Nashville, Tennessee
Cinema Detroit—Detroit, Michigan
