To be followed by a Special Panel on Artistic Practice
Moderated by Graeme Wood AB '01, contributing editor at The Atlantic, and featuring filmmakers Chris Eyre (SMOKE SIGNALS, SKINS), Jack Riccobono AB '03 (THE SEVENTH FIRE), Shane Slattery-Quintanilla AB '03 (THE BALLAD OF ESEQUIEL HERNANDEZ), and the main subject of THE SEVENTH FIRE, Rob Brown.
During the filming of THE SEVENTH FIRE, Mr Brown was sent back to prison for 3 years and used writing as a means of creative escape and reflection. In the forthcoming book WHITE EARTH STORIES, Shannon Kelley of the UCLA Film & TV Archive writes of Mr Brown: "Threading his own way from a ponderous legacy involving the introduction of gang culture to his Ojibwe community, now to a future of greater hope and positivity, Brown has made artistic production a key component of his ongoing work of personal and cultural healing."
This event will explore the creative process in different mediums, including poetry, narrative film, and documentary, and the ways in which these artists hope to engage audiences through their work.
