The publishing jungle — K.I.N. Knowledge in Indigenous Networks

In our last post about publishing we briefly mentioned to watch out for predatory journals. In this blog I will not name any predatory journals or publishers for fear of being sued, but they are not hard to find on the net. There is the saying, “If it is too good to be true then […]

Dec.5th in #Berlin: #Indigenous Female & #Queer/Trans #Filmmakers Series at Xart Splitta

The final event this year in our indigenous female film series, but more coming in 2019!

About the series: 

A spirit permeates Western society of ignoring the harm caused to others, especially if it’s for one’s own gratification or convenience. Racism, homo- and transphobia, ableism and sexism are behaviors that demonstrate that spirit. They damage, deny and erase self-expression and identity. For Black People and People of Color, especially indigenous Women and Trans persons these problems intersect and are even greater.

Through film those affected can affirm agency and resist the systematic silencing and erasure of their voices. By telling their collective stories and shedding light on injustices that occurred historically and until today and the various forms of resistance against these, they can reclaim space and control their own narratives. Thereby ultimately empowering themselves and others within these communities.

In this series we would like to show a number of films by indigenous film makers dealing with a variety of topics amongst others historical and present day injustices, resistance, identity and intersectionality. Each screening will be accompanied by a discussion with the curator Red Haircrow and a guest speaker.


December 5th 2018, 7pm
