Come join our last Cinematheque event of the semester as we welcome students and community members to share and showcase their transnational participatory video projects. Students from Occidental College’s Media Activism Through Participatory Video course teamed up with students from The University of Hong Kong’s course, Globalization and Migration. Students worked in 4 teams to create media with activists from the International Women's Network Against Militarism. The resulting collaborative media projects look at the impact of militarism on women’s lives in Guam, Okinawa, South Korea and the Philippines. 

The Cinematheque series is free and open to the public. 
The event will be held on Zoom. Registration required.
