Urban Industrialized, and Experimental: Contemporary Sámi Political Indigenous Filmmaking By Anna Westerståhl Stenpor

Date: 
Thursday, March 5, 2015 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

Please join us Thursday, March 5th at 6:00PM in HUMN 250 to be a part of a talk with Anna Westerstahl Stenport about contemporary sámi political indigenous filmmaking.

For most of the 20th Century, filmmaking about the Sámi carried all the trademarks of ethnic, racial, and gendered Othering, exoticizing and infantilizing a whole culture and complex history in service of colonial interests on behalf of the Scandinavian nation states. During the past decades, however, a rise in indigenous filmmaking is offering a robust rebuttal of such stereotypes and showing remarkable diversity and depth. In her presentation, Anna Westerstahl Stenport will situate these developments in the context of the rise in indigenous filmmaking all over the world and as part of Sámi political movements toward self-governance.
