FSU art historians will host the opening film and a Q&A with its director in the fifth iteration of Cinehassee, an annual Iberoamerican Film Festival presented by FSU’s Hispanic Graduate Student Association (HiGSA). The Museum & Cultural Heritage Studies program is sponsoring Te Kuhane O Te Tupuna: The Spirit of the Ancestors: El Espíritu de los Ancestros, the opening film in this year’s program on Indigenous communities. This documentary addresses the colonial looting of a sacred spirit from Easter Island, and how the Rapa Nui community is fighting for repatriation.
Join Dr. Erika Loic and PhD student Ileana Olmos online for the synchronous Q&A with director Leonardo Pakarati (Rapa Nui) on September 17 at 5 pm. The film will be available to watch at home for one week before this event (Sept. 12–17).
