Filmmaker Sarah Milinski is thrilled to invite the public to a special screening of her short documentary, New Divisions, co-hosted by PhillyCAM and CinéSpeak.
New Divisions, sheds light on the vibrant yet troubled past and present of the Mummers Parade. Delving into its track record of exclusion and racist performances, the documentary explores the complexities of cultural change. Through an attempt to diversify the parade, the film prompts critical reflections on whether the creation of a 'New Division' signifies genuine progress towards inclusivity or merely a band-aid for a deeply rooted problem.
From Sarah,
"I hope you can join me for this film screening and panel discussion. Light refreshments will be served at 3:30, in advance of the screening."
Free and open to the public
