Live Reading | Thirteen Black Cats: Fatal Act

Sat | 7pm

Live Reading | Thirteen Black Cats: Fatal Act Swiss Institute

As part of FADE IN: INT. ART GALLERY – DAY, please join us as Thirteen Black Cats present a live reading of Fatal Act, their new production currently in-progress. The film is structured by letters written between Claude Eatherly, the weather pilot whose “all clear” report enabled the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and Günther Anders, the German theorist whose work fixated on technology’s capacity to outpace any human intention. Beginning with the letters’ mention of an unrealized Bob Hope movie about Eatherly, Fatal Act passes through prop closets and desert test sites, Foley effects studios and Geiger counter readouts, Hollywood sets and military hospitals in order to consider the ways we attempt to give image to what refuses to be seen.

Please RSVP to

Thirteen Black Cats is a research and production collective for moving images.
