Dec.5th in #Berlin: #Indigenous #Women & #Queer/Trans #Filmmakers Series at Xart Splitta – Opportunities for 2019

On Dec.5th, the final screening & discussion this year, in our film series “Identity.Intersectionality.Indigeneity”. More to come in 2019! or Filmmakers visiting/looking to screen in ? Contact me. We also are able to offer a screening fee to filmmakers, and are particularly interested in those who might appearance in person to discussion their work. https://redhaircrow.com/contact/.

About the series: 

A spirit permeates Western society of ignoring the harm caused to others, especially if it’s for one’s own gratification or convenience. Racism, homo- and transphobia, ableism and sexism are behaviors that demonstrate that spirit. They damage, deny and erase self-expression and identity. For Black People and People of Color, especially indigenous Women and Trans persons these problems intersect and are even greater.

Through film those affected can affirm agency and resist the systematic silencing and erasure of their voices. By telling their collective stories and shedding light on injustices that occurred historically and until today and the various forms of resistance against these, they can reclaim space and control their own narratives. Thereby ultimately empowering themselves and others within these communities.

In this series we would like to show a number of films by indigenous film makers dealing with a variety of topics amongst others historical and present day injustices, resistance, identity and intersectionality. Each screening will be accompanied by a discussion with the curator Red Haircrow and a guest speaker.
