Upcoming Event: “Filmic Life: A Journey to Indigenize Digital Storytelling”
The Film Studies and Mass Communication Programs, with help from the Gender and Women’s Studies Program, are sponsoring an event for those interested in film and digital storytelling.
The event, titled, “Filmic Life: A Journey to Indigenize Digital Storytelling,” will be an open conversation with esteemed Kanien:kehaka Mohawk filmmaker and educator, Paulette Moore.
Moore spent 25 years in Washington, D.C. as a journalist and filmmaker with Discovery Channel, National Geographic, and PBS, among others, including Shenandoah University. Now, she works primarily with Indigenous communities as a @StoryDoula, evolving mainstream media practices to tell stories of resilience, resistance, envisioning, and abundance. Moore is the 2016 filmmaker-in-residence at Kanatsiohareke Mohawk Community in Fonda, N.Y., where members of the Rotinonhson:ni Iroquois Storytellers Collective explore digital storytelling as a path to restore native identity and community.
The conversation will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at 4:00 p.m. in Byrd Board Room, Henkel Hall. All are invited to attend.
