Camille Henrot at Art Basel Miami

Screening tonight as part of Art Basel | Film, Camille Henrot's film Million Dollars Point, which considers the fascination with the “exotic” in geography and history. 

Million Dollars Point (2011), originally shot in Santo Island, Vanuatu in the South Pacific, surveys a unique underwater cemetery of military equipment abandoned by the U.S. Army after World War II. The title of the film echoes the name of the submerged site, which is now a popular diving spot for Australian tourists. Henrot’s film juxtaposes this underwater footage with highly stereotypical images taken from a local music video depicting a mustached man dancing and singing on a Pacific Beach, surrounded by dancing Polynesian girls. In contrasting history with popular culture, Henrot sketches a portrait of the Pacific Islands that raises issues of exoticism, foreignness and authenticity.

Screening starts at 10pm in SoundScape Park, Miami. Free public access.
