February 15, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm
Black Feminist Film School
THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED! WE’LL LET YOU KNOW IF THERE ARE CANCELLATIONS.
In this half-day workshop Alexis Pauline Gumbs and Sangodare will introduce the theories and praxis of Black Feminist Film School. Drawing from griot traditions in the African diaspora and from the literature, films and testimonies of Black Feminist authors and artists such as Akasha Hull, Aishah Shahidah Simmons, Barbara Smith, June Jordan, Audre Lorde, Julie Dash, Pauli Murray, Cheryl Dunye and others, participants will enter a safe space accountable to queer people, people of color, queer people of color and those underrepresented in film and media industries.
During the workshop, these filmmakers will use the tools of Black Feminist Film School to respond to a prompt by creating a 30-second film. Participants will walk away with a 30-second film and the tools to start articulating their own purpose and visionary futures through film.
Sponsored by The Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University, Duke African & African American Studies (AAAS) and Center for Arts, Digital Culture and Entrepreneurship (CADCE), Duke Gender, Sexuality & Feminist Studies (GSF), Forum for Scholars and Publics (FSP).
