CINEMA OF URGENCY, organized by the Walker Art Center and the University of Minnesota, is a program that focuses on the relationship between film and conflict. From Iranian protests, a pope's visit to a country, to treating soldiers with PTSD with video games, the series demonstrates how cinema can still be a space to experience contemporary events and stories.
The brochure for the program visually refers to old wire photo technology photographers and journalists used to employ. Reporters on the field sent images to the bureau by developing film on site, scanning the photo line by line with a machine, and sending that information by telephone to the office which it would finally be converted and printed.
