In cooperation with Heinrich Böll Stiftung Bildungswerk Berlin, you’re invited to a screening of our documentary, “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” on September 7th at FSK Kino am Oranienplatz in Berlin. This event is free to the public with funding made possible from the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin. You are welcome to share this invitation with everyone. Please be sure to register, as seating is limited.
The program starts at 2:00 pm and is followed by a panel discussion with the director, Red Haircrow, and three protagonists. Representing Native Americans are Johnny Clyde (Mezica / Purepecha) and Viveka Frost (Teques / Caribe), and representing an important German perspective is Sönke Bernhardi.
Tagline: “It’s time to learn. To go beyond. It’s not about Winnetou. It’s about you and us.”
Synopsis: “The same mentality that ignores the rights of indigenous people to self-expression are often those who also have stereotypes and gas light GLBTIIQ people. Women. The disabled or economically challenged, especially BIPOC, just wanting for change and equality. It’s basically saying, “My joy is more important than your dignity, your rights or even your life.”
