Resettling – 2020 Narratio Fellowship Film Screening
February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Narratio Fellowship is an annual intensive storytelling and leadership program aimed at providing resettled refugee youth with the tools and resources to share their stories on their own terms with local and global audiences. Under the guidance of 2020 Narratio Artist-in-Residence Ana Vîjdea, this year’s class have developed six short-form autobiographical documentaries that offer intimate and powerful glimpses into their lives, identities and memories—from epic journeys to daily routines. This virtual event marks the inaugural public screening of the Fellows’ films, which will be followed by a discussion of the power of storying lives through film.
This event is part of Syracuse Symposium’s year-long series on “Futures.” Additional support comes from the North Side Learning Center; Syracuse University’s College of Arts & Sciences, celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2021, College of Visual and Performing Arts, and Department of Writing Studies, Rhetoric & Composition; Humanities New York, and Wesleyan University’s Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship.
