Thank you for your interest in our upcoming documentary film, directed by me, and titled: Forget Winnetou! Going Beyond Native Stereotypes in Germany. We are fully in post-production and editing is progressing well. As planned, we are on schedule for an early December 2017 general release but…
On Saturday, 30 September, we will shoot a special scene in which those interested can be a part. It will be a crowd scene of participants walking and interacting on location.
In this scene:
- We illustrate that indigenous and Native people here in Germany or that wherever they are in the world, they may not and do not have to fit European expectations or created stereotypes.
- We illustrate Natives and non-Natives can and do live and work together, and it does not need and should not be a situation of imbalance, of power and control, especially considering colonial history and the continuing practices of native mascots, misrepresentation, cultural appropriation and so forth.
Our small but dedicated team will be on location at 14:30 and we will begin as soon as those who signed-up have gathered. In order to participate, due to EU law, we will need you to sign a short waiver that you agree for your image to be used in our film. Each participant or family group will receive either a film postcard or sticker in appreciation for their participation, as long as supplies last.
30 September is supposed to be a sunny and mild afternoon, but please take note weather conditions may change. It is directly next to a lake, so dress appropriately. We are not responsible for child or animal care for this event, so please be aware of the surroundings.
Please use the contact form below to sign-up. We will add your email address to our list, and provide everyone with more information about location, and directions for the scene.
