Who: Visionary Justice Story, moderated by Shontina Vernon
Resisting Narratives of Erasure features stories and insights from Southern based BIPOC, queer, trans and gender non-conforming filmmakers on contemporary issues such as movements and uprisings for Black lives, gender freedom, queer liberation across diasporic cultures, and more. The films were commissioned as part of an artist development and investment series to advance liberatory narratives by content creators and included a two-day learning lab with industry professionals. The result is a collage of viewpoints engaging Afrofuturism, performance art, archival footage, and more to convey stories of struggle, visibility, love and solidarity.
The series is produced by Visionary Justice StoryLab, and presented in partnership with Southern Fried Queer Pride.
