Emerging Visual Anthropologists Showcase

Laal Pari-film still1

In this special showcase we present three exciting new short ethnographic documentaries. Sadia Halima’s Laal Pari introduces us to a resilient and lively woman activist in Bihar, India, who has challenged a patriarchal system. In Christine Mladic Janney’s Living Quechua, a Brooklyn Peruvian woman’s mission to connect speakers of her native Quechua reveals New York City as a bubbling crockpot of linguistic diversity. Neither Here Nor There (Ni Aquí, Ni Allá), by Gabriella Bortolamedi, reveals the complexities and pressures of a young undocumented  “dreamer” who not only makes it to Berkeley but also keeps her family together despite the pressures of living under the radar.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and Noelle Stout, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology, and Dr. Pegi Vail, Graduate Program in Culture and Media, NYU.

Co-presented by NYU Dept. of Anthropology Graduate Program in Culture and Media
