#BeyondResilience: The Liberatory Canon | Getting Real '20

While much has been written about the colonial history of documentary filmmaking, far less is known about the canon of oppositional cinema created by Black, Indigenous, and other filmmakers of color. There is a rich tradition of oppressed peoples subverting the colonial gaze: from early works by Zora Neale Hurston and William Greaves, to the filmmakers who formed the Iranian New Wave, to the Latin American and African filmmakers behind the Third Cinema movement.

This panel features Stanley Nelson, Heather Rae, Janaína Oliveira, and Yasmina Price.
