“Daredevils,” an 85-minute film by Stephanie Barber, will be screened at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 28, in LH-6. A portrait of risk and language, “Daredevils” presents the experimental narrative of a writer as she interviews a well-known artist and feels the reverberations of their discussion throughout her day. Visually spare, still and verbose, the video considers three formal handlings of language —a dialog, two monologues and a song.
