Released in 12 monthly installments, this suite of short films troubles the boundaries between  literature and cinema. Good Symptom showcases literary media arts experiments that push the language of poetry, essay, correspondence, autobiography, manifestos, thought pieces and hybrid literary works off the page and onto the screen.

Starting in September 2023, subscribers to this series will enter a world that disregards genre and disturbs the definitions of literary and media arts with 1-3 short films and accompanying critical essays by project curators and guest writers.

Showcases of select films and guest artists will roll out all year, starting with a screening and panel discussion at Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, March 11, 2023, followed by an exhibition at the Experiments in Cinema Festival in Albuquerque, NM, March 18-22, 2023.
