Advance Film Screening of "With Hope" with filmmaker Matte Hewitt
Start Date: 5/13/2023Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 5/13/2023End Time: 4:00 PM

Event Description

Attend an advance screening of “With Hope,” a documentary film centering the experiences of BIPOC and LGBTQ+ people who reconnect to the natural world through the act of birding, and by doing so discover a profound sense of belonging, joy and hope.

Featured in the film are members of a growing community of birders in the Philadelphia area, including: In Color Birding Club, Philly Queer Birders, and Feminist Bird Club Philly. Together, the film participants create space for themselves, which wasn’t there before and help provide access for those who haven’t always seen themselves represented in birding.

The film also features bird species that mirror the histories and identities that watch them. Despite coming from different backgrounds, the people starring in “With Hope'' share a perspective of birds and of nature that continues to inspire, to challenge, to comfort, and to awaken delight, while enhancing their relationship with themselves, with each other, and ultimately with the world in which we live.

The film is great for all ages and runs approximately 30 mins. It will be followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Matte Hewitt along with film participants: Katrina Clark, teacher and board member of In Color Birding Club; Jason Hall, vaccine developer and founder of In Color Birding Club; Elise Greenberg, school administrator and founder of Philly Queer Birders; and Dylan O’Donoghue, Ph.D. student and member of Feminist Bird Club Philly.

Support for "With Hope" was provided by The Sachs Program for Arts Innovation and by Scribe Video Center.
