Ronald Rose-Antoinette presents Nocturnal Fabulations

Book launch + conversation, co-presented by MICE Magazine
5-7 pm

Nocturnal Fabulations is an essay in intercessing. This is not a book that is simply ‘about’ Apichatpong Weerasethakul, though it does engage his work in detail. It is a book that deeply questions what else might be at stake in setting up the conditions for collaboration across two genres: cinema and writing.

In an encounter with Apichatpong’s cinematic dreamscape, the concepts of ecology, vitality and opacity emerge to articulate an ethos of fabulation that deframes experience, recomposes subjectivity and unfixes time.

Ronald Rose-Antoinette is a doctoral candidate in philosophy at Concordia University, Montréal. His research explores the spooky entanglement of blackness, errantry, quantum physics, and synesthesia.
