Zoom, Virtual Program

Film Run Time: 15 minutes
Advance viewing is recommended; film will not be shown during Q&A 

Middle and high school students are invited to view award-winning documentaries that examine current social issues such as representation and identity, immigration, and civil rights followed by Q&A sessions with filmmakers.

The Victorias, a short film by Ethan Fuirst, considers themes of community, identity and labor through conversations with seven costumed museum interpreters who have each played the role of Victoria Confino, a teenaged Sephardic Jewish immigrant from 1916. By reflecting on the work of interpreting a historical figure, “the Vickies” each raise questions about the responsibility of stewarding historical stories and how we understand and connect with one another’s identities.
