AWI Voices With Impact presents: Paths to Healing
Facilitated by: Arielsela Holdbrook-Smith
- The Sunset Special by Marlena C Robbins
- Bloom by Asha Alaji-Sharif
The road to and through healing is winding, taking us through unexpected and unpredictable terrain. In this session, we will watch “The Sunset Special” and “Bloom” along with their creators, Marlena C. Robbins and Asha Alaji-Sharif. Together in conversation, and using these two films as examples of paths to healing, we will explore how storytelling can support healing journeys, how to get started in telling a story, and how to find comfort in the midst of challenges.
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!
