Kahlil Joseph to Present ‘BLKNWS’ as a Feature Film

Made in conjunction with A24.

Earlier today, A24 posted a cryptic Instagram post announcing that they will be working with Kahlil Joseph to bring his influential installation, BLKNWS (2018) to theatres as a feature film. Since first debuting at the 2019 Venice Biennale, BLKNWS (2018) has gone on to play at a number of institutions around the world.

The film provides a conceptual spin on a traditional newscast in the form of a two-monitor installation featuring a montage of history, art, reporting and cultural commentary. Described by some as “a work of art as well as a media entity,” Joseph meditates on a range of subjects, such as the way in which society consumes information — a topic that has become all the more contested amidst the growing age of misinformation.

Joseph masterfully cuts a range of disparate, but uniquely connected sources to provide an evergrowing database that provides audiences access to a higher state of awareness. Thus far, no date or location has been revealed for the return of BLKNWS (2018), but you can stay up to date by visiting A24’s website.
