Lecture-performance and conversation - 6th Annual Colgate/Global Flaherty Filmmaker Residency

Filmmaker Maryam Tafakory in Person!

Failed Journeys and Gendered Absence: Maryam Tafakory on Writing Women into Public Space

Lecture-performance and conversation
How does one perform in a site where one’s body is forbidden? Tafakory will discuss and present a live video-essay about her current work, filmed in Kurdistan. The presentation will be followed by a conversation with Flaherty NYC curators Courtney Stephens and Mathilde Walker-Billaud and the artist.

Beginning in 2014, the Film and Media Studies program has held this residency each fall, in collaboration with The Flaherty, a New York City-based nonprofit organization committed to documentary film. The filmmaker-in-residence and the Flaherty curators join us on campus for five days for a series of public screenings, installations, and moderated lectures, as well as class visits in a range of departments and programs.

This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of University Studies and the Office of the Dean of the Faculty, and in collaboration with The Flaherty.
