Film Screening and Director Interview | Harvest: Quyurciq

February 19 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Location: Building 50-51A - Map Link

Free to Stanford students, faculty, staff, alums and friends.

This is a screening of Yupik artist Peter William’s film Harvest: Quyurciq. This film deals with both his efforts to reconcile the history of fur trading in Alaska with his current business and to educate native youth about cultural norms associated with using an animal. Peter’s unique viewpoints offer the viewer the opportunity to grapple with preconceived notions of marine mammal protections, the artistic value of his works in the context of capitalism, and the struggle to maintain native culture. We hope that despite the challenging issues dealt with in the film, viewers leave feeling optimistic about both the future of native people and the ability of differing viewpoints to coexist.
