We Are Moving Stories
In lead up to to the ReFrame Film Festival screening Maya Bastian’s film Arrival Archives was recently covered in We Are Moving Stories. Check out the article for more on Maya’s thoughts about the impetus of the film and the importance of telling these stories.
The film is touring! It will travel to several places in Canada in the next year. If you can catch it and the other films in the Home Made Visible series by Regent Park Film Festival, please do. Every film in the series uses archival material to highlight the stories of people of colour, and all of them are made by indigenous and visible minority female artists. It feels revolutionary. – Maya Bastian
Home Made Visible is going on tour to 16 locations nationwide – and the dates are now live!
