SISTER OUTSIDER*: How We Can Do Better Tomorrow- A film by Marlo De Lara
Film by artist/academic/activist Marlo De Lara
Presented by Titwrench Collective, in partnership with Denver Arts & Venues on September 30, 2021
Honored to have been a part of a candid discussion with some brilliant intersectional feminist organizer/creator comrades regarding organizing events, collaboration, systemic observations and current thoughts on where we have been, where we are, where we are going. Humbled to be a small part of a collection of perspectives as a composite for a more wholistic and equitable view of paths towards "a better tomorrow".
"While the festivals and associated projects that arise from self-named feminist arts collectives and organizations are admired and recognized, SISTER OUTSIDER: How We Can Do Better For Tomorrow will provide the unsaid histories of working with such theoretical frameworks and practice. In short, the film aims to pull back the curtain and serve as a guide." -Titwrench Collective
* "The term Sister Outsider is borrowed from the title of Audre Lorde's 1984 seminal collection of essays and speeches that critiques the myopia of a mostly white, academic community of second-wave feminists that disregards women of color, the LGBTQ+ community, the elderly and the disabled in the writings of the time. This term is used purposely and moves in contemporary formations: As a celebration of inclusive multiple feminisms and liberatory theory that actively amplifies the lived experiences of persons within communities explicitly concerning BIPOC, trans, and persons with (in)visible disabilities." -Marlo De Lara
