>>> *RED REFLECTIONS OF LIFE*
>>>
>>> Los Angeles College (LAC) and the Institute for American Indian and
>>> Indigenous Art and Media (IAIIAM) proudly present Red Reflections of
>>> Life film series this week at California Institute of the Arts. We will
>>> screen over 600 minutes of film and video by contemporary indigenous
>>> artists this Monday (3/30) thru Friday (4/3). Red Reflections of Life 
>>> borrows
>>> its name from artist and Cal Arts alum Richard Ray Whitman (Yuchi/Creek).
>>> As a young student of painting and film, Whitman participated in a
>>> documentary produced by the Institute of American Indian Arts titled "Red
>>> Reflections" (1969). He continued working with community driven films,
>>> ultimately developing a mixed-media body of work critiquing U.S. aggression
>>> toward cultural, political, and institutional sovereignty of American
>>> Indians. His interrogation of Native American survival is too mirrored in
>>> his dedication to social work and form of creative practice.
>>>
>>> Red Reflections of Life echoes Whitman's urgency and refusal of
>>> cultural and institutional mores. Our goals include expansion of American
>>> Indian work in both academic and creative discourse, investigation of
>>> multiplicities of American Indian narrative(s), and destabilization of
>>> conventional history telling and memory making.
