Long Island University, Brooklyn (DeKalb & Flatbush Aves)
Room: LLC 116, Selena Gallery
Women of color offer an original perspective and point of view, documenting films that are not just the recording of reality. They are purposeful in their storytelling intent. Their stories define women of color by women of color. Our discussion explores the uniqueness that is the female documentarian of color. What are the particular perspectives of our storytellers which impact their films and make them so unique? How can we ensure that we can continue to define ourselves in the face of forces that seek to tell us who we are?GUESTS:
