 Dear Friends,

We are pleased to announce that A Snake Gives Birth to a Snake will be shown at the upcoming Africa in Motion Film Festival in Edinburgh. The film will be part of a series exploring recent transitions towards freedom across the African continent. The Africa in Motion Film Festival, now in its tenth year, highlights remarkable stories and filmmaking from across the region. This year’s festival will run from Friday, October 23 to Sunday, November 1. Here are the details for our screening:

We are also very happy to welcome a new board member at Global Arts Corps, Alan Winnikoff. Alan is the co-principal of Sayles & Winnikoff Communications and has an extensive background in digital communications and content strategy for arts organizations. We look forward to collaborating with Alan to share our work with a broader audience and expand our current media presence.

And finally, Michael and Jackie Lessac are traveling to Cambodia this week for our final eight-week production development workshop with the performers of the Phare Ponleu Selpak. They will be joined by Global Arts Corps Associate Artists from the US, Cambodia, Kosovo/France, and South Africa. A fusion of circus and theatre, the final production will explore the silenced past of a nation through the imaginations of its youth.
