Document the Impact is an award-winning film by Adreanna Rodriguez, a Lakota/Chicana artist based in Oakland, California, and a Delta College graduate. Adreanna will present her 18-minute short film followed by an artist talk and Q&A with the audience on March 9 at 12:30pm via Zoom webinar.
The film is about female pastoralists from the Maasai tribe in Northern Tanzania, Africa, who document the impact of climate change through the use of participatory photography.
“The Maasai women, identifiable as 'subaltern', live at the margin of the margins. The project was designed to ensure that these women were empowered to document and speak on climate change issues on their own behalf," states Adreanna.
Adreanna currently works with VICE Media, where she continues to utilize storytelling as a way to highlight the voices of those living at the margins. Adreanna will present her 18 minute short film followed by an artist talk and Q&A with the audience.
This Women’s History Month event is sponsored by the Horton Art Gallery and Delta College Cultural Awareness Program.
