Titled after a poem by CAConrad, Beatrice Gibson’s film I Hope I’m Loud When I’m Dead is loud and intimate, poetic and political, expressive and visually striking. The film touches upon social calamities, political disorder and the urge for protest. It examines the future of a world in constant motion and refers to the question of motherhood as a metaphorical notion. In a sort of love letter, Gibson addresses her daughter. Her film unites politically active, feminist and engaged voices: the words of Eileen Myles, CAConrad, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, and the music of Pauline Oliveros, form the narration. Amidst the chaos, collective artistic engagement, community, and poetry in the universal sense, appear as the tools for positive change and action.
