Join Indiana University’s celebration of the World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, a UNESCO event centered around raising awareness of collective culture recorded on audiovisual media. This screening will focus on this year’s theme, “Your Story is Moving,” through a series of shorts and excerpts about immigration. The program will explore many kinds of “moving” involved in immigration: the physical moving from one country to another; the way these stories are emotionally moving to experience and to hear about; and the way that these narratives about immigration are moving through time to shape our understanding in the present.
The event is free, open to the public, and is hosted by the IU Libraries Moving Image Archive in collaboration with the IU Libraries Diversity Committee.
