Next Date in Our #Indigenous film series in #Berlin is Dec.5th- Guest Speaker Ingrid Pumayalla

We had a nice turn-out for the 2nd evening in our #Indigenous film series “IDENTITY.INTERSECTIONALITY.INDIGENEITY“, focusing on female directors, facilitated by xart splitta. Last night in Berlin, we screened a clip from upcoming documentary “ALMOST”, directed by me, and the extremely moving film directed by Native Hawaiian Ciara Lacey, “Out of State”.  

The next event is Dec. 5th, when Peruvian artist and director Ingrid Pumayalla joins us from London, introducing her short documentary “Otrades Madres”. Description: “A documentary film about Matilde’s journey back to her native Pantipata in rural Cuzco after twenty-two years. Matilde Umeres is a native Quechua woman who migrated to Lima, the capital of Peru, without her family when she was nine years old.” You can see the trailer HERE.

Her work explores the role of art in transforming and repairing loss.
