Partial Stories of "Displacement"--a thirty-minute experimental art documentary by Azadeh Saljooghi
Saljooghi's film locates women's lives in historical-politcal contexts, captures displacement beyond georaphical dislocations, and invites audiences to view displacement as an empowering rather than a crippling modern phenomenon. The understanding that emerges from displacement comes from six women, including the four who directly share their stories with us and self-identify as: Palestinian American, African American, Afghani American, and Native American, as well as the two other women who are Romanian and Turkish. Co-sponsored by Lilly Library and the Baldwin Scholars, Focus, Literature, Muslim Cultures, and Film/Video/digital programs. Light refreshements will be served; this event is free and open to the public.
