Friday Docs with TLGS
Treaty Lands, Global Stories has always operated on the premise that storytelling is a powerful tool through which we can learn. Stories transport us and show us unreachable perspectives. They confront us with realities we have never considered before. Our bias towards storytelling is frankly obvious: the word story is our name, after all!
Our most recent project is the launch of a documentary series in which we hope to do just that: tell stories! We will be screening documentaries in the lecture hall every-other Friday, in an attempt to open up windows to unexplored territories, and frankly, to have fun.
We start the series this Friday, November the 3rd at 7 PM in the Cummings Lecture Theatre with the experimental master-piece Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance.
The film is a powerful visual-audio experience directed by Godfrey Reggio with music composed by Philip Glass and cinematography by Ron Fricke. It is a dance of image and sound in a depiction of modern life that will awe you at every second.
We hope to see you there!
