The stunning 20×29 foot projection installation “Different Trains” combines a modern classical score by composer Steve Reich and footage of both sleek passenger trains in prosperous America and historical footage of the livestock rail cars used by the Nazis to transport people to concentration camps. Looking to shed some insight into this 1989 work by Spanish filmmaker Beatriz Caravaggio, guest lecturer Stephen L. Esquith from the University of Michigan will discuss both the score and footage, looking to break down the emotions associated with viewing the film and how it ties into our collective memories of travel and the past.
