Collectively in Conversation

Collectively highlights groundbreaking community-based media collectives. Using audio and visual media from the Bophana Center in Cambodia, Maisha Film Lab in East Africa and Vídeo nas Aldeias | Video in the Villages in the Brazilian Amazon, participants will discuss their work and its circulation. Joining us are acclaimed directors Rithy Panh, founder of Bophana Center, Vídeo Nas Aldeais’ founder Vincent Carelli, and Mira Nair, who started Maisha with the motto “If we don’t tell our own stories, no one else will.”
