Workshop: Malinda Francis: “Reclaiming Images: Decolonization Through Video”

It is important to educate youth about the negative images which bombard them on a daily basis.  Educating the youth about these images enables them to contextualize what they see, and empowers them to create their own images, to tell their own stories.

Malinda Francis tells visual stories—that she draws from her experience—to communicate and connect with others within her community. An independent filmmaker, Francis has been working as a freelance filmmaker, camera operator and editor for 6 years. In addition to her own projects, she works on various community media initiatives. Her work explores themes such as urban living and migration.”
