  • In Person

Pia Borg is a Maltese/Australian filmmaker based in Los Angeles. Her films and installations interrogate questions of form and challenge cinematic registers, exploring the pull between the real and the mediated, between nonfiction and the constructed genres of science fiction and horror. Through archival footage, CGI animations, and performed reenactments, Borg’s films chronicle historical, cultural, and psychological phenomena like false memory syndrome, collective hysteria, and the “opal fever” surrounding extractive industries.
