Up/Rooted: Pamela Woolford's Cabin Windows is a multi-sensory show opening at Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery in Washington, DC, in 2022. The show will feature Pamela's filmwork, including newly premiering augmented-reality pieces, experienced in a scenically designed, immersive cabin setting. The exhibition is made possible in part with support from Maryland State Arts Council.
Pamela derives the cabin windows motif from her films Interrupted: Prologue to a Mem-Noir and Generation and her story Just After Supper. Interrupted had a limited online release in 2020 with a virtual premiere event attended by 1.5 thousand people. The event was cosponsored by Busboys and Poets and the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University. Interrupted was made possible in part with support from jazz-great Bob Jazz, United Way of Central Maryland, Mosaic Center for Culture and Diversity at University of Maryland Baltimore County, Maryland State Arts Council, and Leah Mazur & Drew Willard. In 2018 and 2019, Generation was an official selection for a dozen arts and film festivals in three continents, won five film festival awards, and, like Interrupted, received rave reviews. "Just After Supper," published in Origins Journal, is a fiction piece inspired by the life of Pamela's mother, writer Sadie Woolford. The story was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by one of the Prize's contributing editors, novelist Mark Wisniewski.
