About the event:
Book your Sunday outing for the ever-popular Movie Sundays
We’re bringing you three short films today:
10:00 Miss Representation
Written and directed by Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Miss Representation exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. Miss Representation includes stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists, and academics like Lisa Ling, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Rosario Dawson, Jackson Katz, Jean Kilbourne, and Gloria Steinem. The film offers startling facts and statistics to leave audiences shaken and armed with a new perspective.
12:00 ‘We are Water’ and ‘Desert Fish’
Two short and fascinating documentaries that will inspire and uplift you – and help make sense of what kind of knowledge can be generated through one interactively designed installation.The making and burning of Fiscilla the Tigerfish shows how design can make a difference to how we think about water and its deep connection to climate change. See how 60 trans disciplinary students combined their skills and huge creativity to engage international and local audiences in Namibia and at AfrikaBurn.
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent of people in an unprecedented way, unleashing unlimited creative opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead flooded and drowned in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? Is it cultural democracy or mediocrity? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
