film series: engaging race, difference, and otherness through film & dialogue

The ICP Task Force against Racism and Homophobia invites you to our Zoom Film Series: engaging race, difference, and otherness through film and dialogue.

Taking an in-depth look at race, difference, and otherness as well as our own practice of othering presents a challenge for contemporary psychoanalysis. These five films confront us with a view of the lives outside of white, heteronormative perspectives to offer us a focused discussion about what these films capture in us. We’ll watch all five films over Zoom, allowing us to come together and share our thoughts and reactions during the film. The moderated discussion that follows will focus our attention on specific themes from each film, creating space to share our individual experiences with each other.

Divided We Fall is a critically acclaimed documentary film on hate crimes in the aftermath of 9/11. Told through the stories of Sikh Americans, the film offers vital historical context to the current crisis of hate and nationalism in the U.S. — and how we can change it through the ethic of Revolutionary Love
