This is Wonderland.

In the film “Wonderland”, artist and filmmaker Christopher McGill critically takes his audience into a “Wonderland”. The “Wonderland” is a space filled with the pleasures and laughter of his closest friends, favorite artists and most trusted companions.

It is the presence of their bodies that creates this “Wonderland” in the middle of downtown Chicago. Etheridge Knight’s poem “The Idea of Ancestry” is enacted in Christopher McGill’s short film “Wonderland.” Knight writes, “I know their dark eyes, they know mine. I know their style, / they know mine. I am all of them, they are all of me.”

“Wonderland” provides the glimpse, the potential and the critical questioning of Black pleasures, philosophy and futurity.
