Workshop: Documentary Filmmaking with Lana Lin

Join us for a workshop in collaboration with SQIFF with Lana Lin, a filmmaker, artist, and writer whose creative practice concerns embodied vulnerabilities. Lana’s most recent film The Cancer Journals Revisited is a brave feature prompting the question of what it means to re-visit and re-vision Black lesbian feminist poet Audre Lorde’s classic 1980 memoir of her breast cancer experience today.

The workshop will be broken down into two one-hour sessions. In the first hour Lana will give an overview of her practice, particularly focussing on ethics of documentary filmmaking. For the second half of the session, Lana will workshop a couple of selected projects from submissions. Attendees are welcome to join with or without a film project in the making.
