I’ve been hoping to screen our film at Smith College for quite some time. Having heard about their graduate social work program from dear friends who are now alums, I knew our film would be uniquely well-suited to help them deepen into the meaty conversations they’re already having.
So my profound gratitude to Charles Shealy and the Council for Students of Color for bringing me in for this screening event. I’m looking forward to what promises to be a juicy post-screening discussion…
Their event description:~
A Lot Like You is an amazing documentary that will be shown along with a Q&A with director Eliaichi Kimaro. Her moving film takes us back to her father’s family in Tanzania and confronts the realities of colonization, revolution, globalization, family violence, mixed identities, trans-national families, and reclaiming roots in a complex manner. Ellie is able to bring out all of the complexity and hold it in a warm space for us as she takes us on her journey of discovery of global questions that have personal answers.
7:00-9:00 p.m., Weinstein Auditorium
Open to Public
