AWI Voices With Impact presents: Keeping Our Fathers Alive
Facilitated by: Britt Martinez-Hewitt
- Until Our Spirits Meet Again by Alexander Nystrom
- Six Feet Apart by Monty Cole
- The Sunset Special by Marlena C. Robbins
The loss of a father can feel tragic and unfair. But our fathers’ legacies can live on after they pass, through our memories of them and the stories we tell. In this session we will be exploring the strength and power we have to keep our fathers alive through storytelling, narrative, and memory. Along with filmmakers Alexander Nystrom, Monty Cole, and Marlena C. Robbins, we will watch three short films that each, in their own way, keep our fathers alive.
Led by the filmmakers, the festival features a selection of interactive seminars and engaging discussions, related to the films and the themes we are exploring through this year’s program. If you are interested in learning about these sessions, you can see them all on our Voices With Impact information page!
