At the Indigenous Film Festival 2018 on Pine Ridge: Our #Documentary

Red Haircrow

Quite thrilled to be selected and have my documentary “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” screened at the 2018 Indigenous Film Festival at Pine Ridge in Billy Mills Hall. We hoped it simulated some good conversations, and I consider us lucky to be included next to so many wonderful Native films, animations and music videos.

Call For Submissions – Native/Indigenous Film & Multimedia Screening Opportunity

In cooperation with Xart Splitta, we want to help showcase Native/indigenous films in Berlin, Germany through Fall/Winter 2018.

Main Themes for films or other multimedia projects by and about:

  • Native/indigenous women
  • GLBTIQ communities or two-spirit persons
  • contemporary themes and indigenous futurisms
  • decolonization of cuisine, culture, languages and traditions or environmental practices.

 

Discussion panels, workshops and lectures are planned. Filmmakers and artists don’t have to be on location in Berlin but would be very welcome. We can also arrange discussions via video chat. We are open to themes and compositions to accompany your films.

The purpose is for Natives to present and represent themselves and help educate on and lessen Native stereotypes and stereotyping through sharing their stories and experiences on their own terms.

The schedule is now being planned and will be finalized by August. The number of screenings and events will be based on the number of submissions.

Please contact us through our website form, including descriptions and links to your work, your availability and a short bio/profile. Also, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

Two of my poems, “The Color of Your Skin” and “Threatened by Beads” are included in this anthology of essays, art, poetry and more. First appearing in Red Ink International Journal’s special issue, Standing With Standing Rock (December 2016), my work was translated to German for this edition of Neue Rundschau, published by S. Fischer Verlag.

From the Facebook event page: Publication Launch of “Writing History”. Edited by Sharon Dodua Otoo and Manuela Bauche, who have asked writers, artists and academics about their vision of “writing history” for the latest edition of the magazine Neue Rundschau (S. Fischer Verlag).  As part of the symposium: “New Perspectives”. More information and registration details are available at the Xartsplitta website.

Synopsis: “Hegemonic historiographies – such as those about colonialism – are increasingly beginning to falter, are being rewritten and reperspectived. However, this does not happen by itself, but is also driven by…
