Event: Tuesday Apr. 28, 2015
The NYWIFT Member Screening Series provides members with the opportunity to show their work in a theatrical setting. The screenings take place at Anthology Film Archives, followed by networking at a nearby bar.
Join us for this month’s NYWIFT Screening Series feature: Dreadlocks Story directed by member Linda Aïnouche, who will be available for a Q&A immediately following the film.
Linda Aïnouche, Ph.D, was first an Ethnographic Researcher and Cultural Analyst and specialized in ethnic minorities, misunderstood communities and religion before becoming a documentary filmmaker. Aïnouche’s Hindu and Rastafari expertise gives Dreadlocks Story a unique style that addresses the cultural influences of India on the Rasta lifestyle and covers persecution and misperceptions of the Rastafari movement. Her wide range of fieldwork allows her to work with local people and see a hidden perspective rarely touched on.
WOMEN CALLING THE SHOTS FOR 35 YEARS
