By us, about us! New, immersive documentary films from the Black, Indigenous, and Disability communities made by filmmakers from within the community, presented in conjunction with the American Museum of Natural History’s Margaret Mead Film Festival.
The American Museum of Natural History’s Margaret Mead Film Festival features documentary films, shorts, and other media that increase our understanding of the complexity and diversity of peoples and cultures around the world. In the spirit of the Mead Festival and in conjunction with the Dismantling Eugenics conference, the Museum engaged preeminent film curators from the Black, Indigenous, and Disability communities to create a series of film screenings and round-table conversations that “pass the mic” and provide a platform for voices from within marginalized communities to tell their own stories. Jason Ryle (ImagineNative Film Festival), Mahen Bonetti (African Film Festival), and Lawrence Carter-Long (Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund/Cinema Shift).
