- Environments of Race and Place
December 7 at 4:00 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall
The third program in the series concentrates on issues surrounding immigration, migration, and racial identity unique to a specific environment. These works embrace and enhance the micro rather than the macro, moving away from the national to the local and from the long-form theatrical feature to the short-form documentary. Discussions of police brutality in Third World Newsreel’s Black Panther: Off the Pig (1967) or animations about toxic pollution made by the Indigenous youth media collective Outta Your Backpack expand conceptualizations of independent nonfiction work. (Total running time approximately 84 minutes)
