Mother Tongue Film Festival/¡Printing the Revolution! Virtual Conversation Series

The Smithsonian has two different events that may be of interest to you and your students. The Mother Tongue Film Festival runs through the end of May, with a variety of films celebrating cultural and linguistic diversity around the world. Latin American and Caribbean titles still available include Eating Up Easter (in Rapa Nui, from Chile), Yaõkwá – Image and Memory (in Enawenê-Nawê, from Brazil), and Nixíí/Bastón De Mando (in Me’phaa, from Mexico).
There is also an event entitled Creating in a Digital Sphere which focuses on Chicanx digital artists and includes folks featured in the upcoming Smithsonian American Art Museum exhibit, ¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now. This online event, the last in this five-part series, streams Thursday, May 13, 2021, 6:30 ET. This event is free and registration is required via Eventbrite. There will be real-time captioning for accessibility. Previous conversations and other resources can be found at the exhibit’s website.
