From March 1 until April 5, 2023, the Mentoring for Social Justice and Community-Building Project, a joint initiative of the School of Graduate Studies and Douglass Residential College, will host "Latin American Film Festival: Indigenous Voices." The next screening is the film, "Ixcanul." See here for the film's trailer.
In our current global situation of climate change and environmental catastrophe, many environmental humanities scholars are turning to indigenous ontologies to seek out answers and guidance. The five movies that we curated for the festival showcase narratives from indigenous communities from several Latin American countries and portray their struggles and strategies of survival. With the festival, we hope to honor their voices by showcasing their work to our Rutgers community.
All screenings will be on Wednesdays at 7 PM at Voorhees Hall (105)
