We are so grateful to the Anchorage Museum for exhibiting ten films produced by the fall 2021 class, “Alaska Native Filmmaking: Stories for Climate Justice” co-sponsored between the UAF Department of Theatre & Film and Native Movement.
The exhibition is open at the museum Circumpolar Cinema from September 30, 2022-March 2023. In conjunction with the opening, we held a panel discussion, archived on Facebook:
STORIES FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE PANEL AND FILM SCREENING
Join participants of the Alaska Native Filmmakers Intensive alongside their mentors as they reflect the production of films featured in Stories for Climate Justice, which opened September 30 in the Northern Narratives Gallery on the second floor. The evening will include a back-to-back screening and panel of the exhibition’s ten films examining how Indigenous Alaskans are responding to the impacts of climate change on their homelands and communities.
