Clement Hil Goldberg and Charles Costas
Today’s podcast is a conversation from the live Psychedelic Salon featuring Clement Hil Goldberg, the writer, director and animator behind the upcoming sci-fi comedy Let Me Let You Go. We talked about how mushrooms can save the world, stop-motion animation, Bett Williams’ The Wild Kindness and contemporary psychedelic literature, non-human agency, queer culture, psychedelic capitalism, and how psychedelics can inspire a new future for art, poetry, and music.
Clement Hil Goldberg is a queer and nonbinary trans, award-winning Multidisciplinary Artist, Writer, Director and Animator. Their satirical yet hopeful projects center collective grief rooted in climate crisis, cultural erasure, displacement and end-stage capitalism. Their work has been exhibited at REDCAT Theatre, VORTEX Rep, Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive and the Worth Ryder Art Gallery, Institute of Contemporary Art at U Penn, Anthology Film Archives; CounterPulse, Yerba Buena Center For The Arts, SOMArts, Luggage Store Gallery, Artists Television Access, all in San Francisco; and over 50 international film and arts festivals including Frameline, Outfest, MIX NYC, Hamburg International Queer Film Festival and Cleveland International Film Festival.
