Dr. Jenny Chio’s film “Peasant Family Happiness” was recognized with an honorable mention at Heritales: International Heritage Film Festival, which was held last weekend in Évora, Portugal. There will be a screening and a public talk on October 8th in Santa Fe, as part of the Museum of International Folk Art’s current exhibition “Quilts of Southwest China”. Additionally, Dr. Chio will be giving a closed seminar for museum docents to help expand their knowledge and familiarity with social and political conditions in ethnic minority regions of Southwest China.
Dr. Jenny Chio’s film, 农家乐 Peasant Family Happiness, is selected for the 2017 Heritales: International Heritage Film Festival in September 2017 in Évora, Portugal. Co-organized by UNESCO and the University of Évora, the festival’s theme this year is “sustainable communities,” and it is one of the few film festivals focused on exploring cultural heritage politics through documentary film.
In addition to the Krotovo film festival in Macedonia, Dr. Anna Grimshaw’s film “At Low Tide” will be screened at the 2016 American Anthropological Association meetings in Minneapolis, the Days of Ethnographic Cinema Festival in Moscow, and the Greek Ethnographic Film Festival in Athens!
