Film Screening - 'Mining Memory' A film by Professor Dan Yon

March 20, 2019 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Nat Taylor Cinema, York University (N102 Ross Building)

Please join us on Wednesday, March 20th  from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Nat Taylor Theatre (N102 Ross Building, York University) for the screening of Professor Dan Yon’s most recent film Mining Memory.

The film is the third in what has become a trilogy. The titles of the previous two films are One Hundred Men and Sathima’s Windsong. These works bring together Yon’s scholarly interests in human migrations, displacements, memory, diaspora studies, race-making and identity formations. The works are ethnographic films that add to the field of visual anthropology. Mining Memory also continues the project of ‘thinking with the sea’ and a humanities of the sea.
