Filmmaker Heather Rae and Movement Leader Janaya Kahn on Transformative Storytelling (Audio)

How can we imagine an inclusive America through storytelling? This was the question at the heart of a series of conversations co-sponsored by JustFilms | Ford Foundation and Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival as part of an event, “Tell It Like It Is: America Reimagined Through Film.” Moderated by Pop Culture Collaborative’s Executive Director Bridgit Antoinette Evans, the conversation series brought together artists, writers, and movement leaders.

And in this special audio excerpt, listen to the fascinating conversation between Janaya Khan, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Canada and Native American filmmaker Heather Rae on how we must unite our communities in order to tell our own stories, not have our stories told for us.
