Truambi: Land, Memory and Indigeneity
Indigenous filmmakers craft complex productions engaging ideas around belonging, identity and territoriality. This programme of short film productions, all directed by Indigenous artists, offers a glimpse of the diversity of contemporary Latin American Indigenous film, exercising the right to self-representation and projecting narratives of migration, cultural memory, and environmental knowledge.
Viewed together, these works initiate a reflection on the thorny constitution of Indigenous film as a category, demonstrating a wide range of experiences and drawing attention to the power of audiovisual storytelling to unsettle dominant colonial narratives of indigeneity.
Join us for this exciting Latin American programme and see for yourselves the vitality of new cinematic languages from the region.
