Film Showing: Old Met

Date: June 26, 2022
Time: 1:20 PM - 1:30 PM
Director: John Haley

"Old Met" is a short experimental archival documentary exploring the imprint of capitalism on lived spaces. The film documents the structural journey of a single plot of land, from the construction of the Minnesota Twins' Metropolitan Stadium to its eventual demolition and replacement by the Mall of America. As the film spirals between these two quintessentially “American” symbols—the baseball stadium and the shopping mall—the circuitous and appropriative mechanisms of our economic structures are imprinted, again and again, on the surrounding landscape.
