Museum to screen documentary film
DATE: April 28, 2017
TIME: 6-8:30 p.m.
LOCATION: University of Alaska Museum of the North
Ethnographic filmmaker Leonard Kamerling will show his newest film, “Changa Revisited,” at 6 p.m. Friday, April 28, at the University of Alaska Museum of the North.
The documentary, set in East Africa, draws on a collection of photographs and audio recordings, woven with contemporary video footage, to create a portrait of one family’s struggle to adapt to a world transformed by the loss of their traditional livelihood.
“Changa Revisited” has been seen at film festivals around the globe since it was released in 2016. It won the OutstandDox Award at the Astra Film Festival in Romania, the festival’s main prize presented by the judges to the best international film. The film was most recently an official selection at the Royal Anthropological Film Festival in England.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information about the museum’s programs and events, visit the website at www.uaf.edu/museum or call 474-7505.
