“Against the Myths”: My Workshops at an Indigenous Film Fest in Rostock, Germany

unnamed

This Sunday, 16 November 2014 in Rostock, Germany I’ll be giving two workshops at the “Tages des Indigenen Films”, a multicultural event to help spread understanding and knowledge of indigenous peoples speaking for themselves using the medium of feature film and documentary.

“Elements EV, will be presenting several feature films, documentaries and children’s films created by indigenous peoples to help spread accurate knowledge about themselves across the world in the way they wish to be known.

I will be presenting two workshops: one for adults, and one for children. For adults, “Gegen den Mythos”, directly addressing the Hollywood and European stereotypes that are still perpetuated, as well as discussing modern perspectives, beliefs and progression. For children, a simpler discussion and presentation on why we don’t give feathers, and what they really mean in native cultures. My son, who is accompanying me, will assist in this workshop.”

Workshops begin at noon. For more information, and to see the list of films to be screened, please visit the website.” http://indigen.elements-ev.org/Tage_des_indigenen_Films/Workshops.html
