Flying With Red Haircrow Productions

"Revitalization and Resurgence"

Call For Submissions – Native/Indigenous Film & Multimedia Screening Opportunity

In cooperation with Xart Splitta, we want to help showcase Native/indigenous films in Berlin, Germany through Fall/Winter 2018.

Main Themes for films or other multimedia projects include but are not strictly limited to:

  • Native/indigenous women
  • GLBTIQ communities or two-spirit persons
  • contemporary themes and indigenous futurisms, which is a term coined by Professor Grace Dillion (Anishinaabe)
  • decolonization of cuisine, culture, languages and traditions or environmental practices.

 

Discussion panels, workshops and lectures are planned. Filmmakers and artists don’t have to be on location in Berlin but would be very welcome. We can also arrange discussions via video chat. We are open to themes and compositions to accompany your films.

The purpose is for Natives to present and represent themselves and help educate on and lessen Native stereotypes and stereotyping through sharing their stories and experiences on their own terms.

The schedule is now being planned and will be finalized by August. The number of screenings and events will be based on the number of submissions.

Please contact us through our website form, including descriptions and links to your work, your availability and a short bio/profile. Also, if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.

Book Launch July 5, 2018 in #Berlin- “Geschichte Schreiben” or “Writing History”

180621_Neue Rundschau_01Two of my poems, “The Color of Your Skin” and “Threatened by Beads” are included in this anthology of essays, art, poetry and more. First appearing in Red Ink International Journal’s special issue, Standing With Standing Rock (December 2016), my work was translated to German for this edition of Neue Rundschau, published by S. Fischer Verlag.

From the Facebook event page: Publication Launch of “Writing History”. Edited by Sharon Dodua Otoo and Manuela Bauche, who have asked writers, artists and academics about their vision of “writing history” for the latest edition of the magazine Neue Rundschau (S. Fischer Verlag).  As part of the symposium: “New Perspectives”. More information and registration details are available at the Xartsplitta website.

Synopsis: “Hegemonic historiographies – such as those about colonialism – are increasingly beginning to falter, are being rewritten and reperspectived. However, this does not happen by itself, but is also driven by the year-long struggles of activists, such as initiatives of Black people and other People of Colour. How can history be told differently? Is historical injustice comparable? Can history not also be decentered and complex?


Publikations-Launch von “Geschichte Schreiben”. Hg. von Sharon Dodua Otoo und Manuela Bauche. Im Rahmen des Symposiums: “Neue Perspektiven”
(www.xartsplitta.net/symposium-neue-perspektiven/)

“Hegemoniale Geschichtserzählungen – etwa über den Kolonialismus – geraten zuletzt zunehmend ins Wanken, werden umgeschrieben und neu perspektiviert. Das geschieht aber nicht von selbst, sondern wird auch durch die jahrelangen Kämpfe von Aktivist*innen, beispielsweise Initiativen Schwarzer Menschen und weiterer People of Colour, vorangetrieben. Wie lässt sich Geschichte anders schreiben? Ist historisches Unrecht vergleichbar? Lässt sich Geschichte nicht auch dezentriert und komplex erzählen?”

Our Film Excerpt in New Exhibition on Race in Dresden – May 19, 2018 to Jan. 6, 2019

Pleased to announce our small part in the upcoming new exhibition on race at the Deutsches Hygiene Museum in Dresden, Germany. Film footage from our documentary film, “Forget Winnetou: Loving in the Wrong Way” (2018), will be part of a critically needed discussion on the origins of the race myth, and the subsequent creation and uses of stereotypes within the white supremacist power structures and institutional racism that is standard operating procedure for European run countries, (descendants or directly) wherever they are in the world.
