Creatively Speaking Film Festival: Diversity Rising Local is Global

Saturday, July 13, 2019

In honor of Bastille day, and in collaboration with the NRP Library’s Bastille Day weekend of fun, The Creatively Speaking Film Series presents a free program with a wide range of engaging films and shorts, perfect for the whole family.

The festival is curated with films that include little known history lessons; the significance of family and education; identity and culture; coming of age and uplifting migration stories. The facilitated discussions, many of which will include the films’ directors, are designed to encourage bold, thoughtful conversation, as well as discussion of the craftsmanship of filmmaking.

On Saturday, July 13, two programs of shorts will take place, beginning at 2 pm and at 4:30 pm. Auntie by Lisa Harewood, De Colores by Luz Zamora, Charcoal by Francesca Andre, Zahra and the Oil Man by Yusef Mayes, A Girl Like Me by Kiri Davis, Standing on the Scratchline by Julie Dash, Sticks and Stones by Rehema Imani Trimiew, and The Woodpecker by Alberto Morales.
