[Hybrid] Through the Lens: Realizing Identity & Needs Through Filmmaking
March 11 @ 6:00 PM PST
Bay Area performers and filmmakers are grappling with what it means to be artists as displacement, surveillance, violence, the pandemic, and economic disruption wreak havoc on their communities.
They follow a long lineage of local media makers leveraging film as a collaborative process to engage their communities, by connecting personal emotional truths to immediate social priorities and needs. The program will explore how media makers are experimenting with and pushing the boundaries of filmmaking by redefining the meaning of success, away from the commercial-driven goal of building mass audiences and toward community-driven self-identification and inclusion.
