¡Creating Cultura! a Xican@ Film Festival – 12/3 1PM UC Davis

Saturday, December 3 · 1:00pm – 4:00pm
Chem 194! UC Davis

Dear Community,

We are proud to present original students’ films and artwork, and an exciting film festival and poster art exhibit in the making. This is a very unique teaching/learning experience for all of us. We are using digital media in the classroom to discuss, analyze, showcase, and open a space to critically and creatively address contemporary issues in the context of hard economic times and budget cuts.

Students are writing, editing, directing and producing their original short films, and are also organizing a film festival event. The event will include renowned filmmaker, Sylvia Morales, who will screen her latest feature documentary A CRUSHING LOVE: Chicanas, Motherhood and Activism (2009) focusing on the life of five extraordinary Latina activists. Morales is a tenured Professor at Loyola University and will be available for a Q&A session afterwards.

In a time of recession, these events promote community engaged scholarship and enables collaborative education. This is a very special historic event that everyone should come and support.

All are welcome, including the entire family. The film festival is free and open to the public. We will offer free refreshments, fun, door prizes, and raffle a surprise gift.

We urge you to be there, and please pass the word about this blast!

Thank you for your Support,
Chicana/o Studies Department Students, T.A. s, and Professor from CHI50 and CHI112 @ UC Davis
