This event has ended.

Amy O’Neill’s film The Zoo Revolution (2006-2019) combines original and found footage to examine the derelict remnants of twentieth-century Americana through a lens that is both personal and political. Raised in the 1970s and 80s in the Pennsylvania Rust Belt, O’Neill interrogates the region’s history of industrial decline and economic uncertainty, isolating cultural narratives that continue to resonate today. Texturized by pulsing camerawork, layered imagery, and traces of archival matter, The Zoo Revolution evokes the affective and perceptual experience of recollection—in which vivid details punctuate hazy or enigmatic abstractions.
