Filmmaker kicks off film festival in Keene

Filmmaker Victoria Mudd will speak on “Images of Indians: From Reel to Real” at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 3, at Antioch University New England (AUNE).

Mudd, the 2013 alumna-scholar-in-residence at Antioch, professor of media studies at Pitzer College in California, and the producer of several documentary films, including an Academy Award winner, will kick off the Monadnock International Film Festival (MonIFF).

In her presentation, Mudd traces the representation of Native Americans in film, using examples from dozens of films to show how Euro-Americans depict their own society while ostensibly showing that of American Indians. As Native American filmmakers have made more films, they have begun to explore their own culture, “setting the historical record straight.”

This Speaker Series event will take place in the Community Room and is free and open to the public.

A presentation of the film “Images of Indians: From Reel to Real” will be April 5 at Keene State College.
