Second Sunday Culture Film Series at the Penn Museum: We don’t need a map (2017)

Date/Time

Nov 10, 2019
02:00 PM until 04:00 PM

Description

The Penn Museum’s ninth annual *Second Sunday Culture Film Series, offered October through March is held in collaboration with the Wolf Humanities Center's 2019-2020 Forum on Kinship. Created by indigenous filmmakers from different countries, this year’s Culture Film Series shares perspectives about “family”—from their own places in the world—and how defining “what makes a family” varies in the eye of the beholder. A facilitated discussion follows each film screening at 2:00 pm. Included with Museum admission. Free for Museum members, PennCard holders, U.S. active duty/reservist military personnel, and veterans.
 

Directed by Warwick Thornton, this thought-provoking film explores the Southern Cross, the most famous constellation in the southern hemisphere. For indigenous Australians, its meaning is deeply spiritual, representing a familial entity, pointing to the origins of people and directional orientation. But, recently, the same symbol has evolved into a representation of white nationalism, exclusion, and anti-immigration sentiment. Sponsored by Penn Cinema Studies and CAMRA. Speaker: Julia Alekseyeva, Penn Cinema Studies
