This Land: Outdoor Screening and Q&A with Faith E. Briggs

July 28, 2021 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Museum Courtyard

As a closing program to Ansel Adams In Our Time, join us for a FREE outdoor screening and audience Q&A of two films by filmmaker, Faith E. Briggs that open conversations around the lack of representation of BIPOC communities in outdoor spaces.  Working in collaboration with Mobile Projection Unit, Briggs will be showing This Land, a short film committed to changing the conservation conversation as it follows Briggs on her run of 150 miles through three U.S. National Monuments that lay in the thick of the controversy around public lands.  Following This Land, Briggs will also be premiering a recent short documentary film made in collaboration with REI about outdoor adventure company Camp Yoshi, founded by local chef Rashad Frazier.

We encourage guests to bring their own chairs for the screening.

Faith E. Briggs is a creative producer, filmmaker and podcast host passionate about sharing contemporary stories that widen the spectrum of representation and help us all see our own possibilities. Her favorite feelings are a tie between sun on skin and warm mud oozing between bare toes. She is grateful for the life changing knowledge of literary grandmothers such as Audre Lorde, bell hooks, Toni Morrison, Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Cade Bambara and many more. She is a partner and director at Camp 4 Collective.
