Brett Story's Two tables, two chairs, one tent: Cinema, Scale, and the Amazon Labor Union
Main Hall, Daniels Building
No registration required
In this talk, the Toronto-based filmmaker, writer and geographer Brett Story will explore the relationship between research and creative practice, arguing for filmmaking as a mode of radical inquiry.
Sharing select scenes from her current project, a feature documentary charting the unlikely union-organizing trajectory of a small band of Amazon workers in Staten Island, New York, Dr. Story will discuss the geographies of scale, the precarity of current labour struggle, and the desire for the political as aesthetic form.

This event is co-presented by Images Festival.
