Angelica Mesiti Citizens Band 2012

A new work is screened every two months in this dedicated space for AGWA’s growing filmic acquisitions.


Citizens band documents the individual performances of four migrant musicians, concluding with a polyphonic piece created by playing all the soundtracks together. Each player produces a distinct sound through techniques that are inflected with their cultural origin. All poignantly evoke their remembrance of the homeland and their displacement from the urban Western context in which they perform.
