PUTNEY- Next Stage Arts Project presents the film “Re-Learning Hope: A Story of Unitierra” as part of its [FRAMED] hosted film series on Thursday, March 19, at 7 pm. The screening will include an introduction and Q&A with directors Udi Mandel and Kelly Teamey.
“Re-Learning Hope” is the story of Unitierra, an autonomous university in Oaxaca, Mexico, that is immersed in, and has emerged from, the social and indigenous movements of the region. The film tells the story of this emergence of Unitierra and its powerful critique of traditional education and development. The film is a hopeful example of how communities are taking control of their own learning and shaping an ecological path for their communities amid a context of violence.
Admission is by a $12 suggested donation at the door. For more information call (802) 387-0102 or visit nextstagearts.org. Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill and has a beer and wine cash bar.
