They will make a live interactive presentation to illustrate the 13-year-old experience of the collective in using films, documentaries and visual storytelling to bear witness to injustices and atrocities, to archive the modern history of our times from the indigenous perspective as opposed to govt propaganda and corporate media blitzkriegs, to use video as a tool of advocacy as well as evidence in legal engagements, to reach out within the larger community of indigenous people locally, regionally, nationally as well as globally. In the presentation several short videos made by indigenous people as well as those arising from collaborative efforts of indigenous people’s movements will be exhibited.
