Join us for a screening of the film, We Have Stories: Women in Fish, a twenty-minute documentary and community storytelling project about indigenous women, water, and fish inspired by Coast Salish / Sahtu Dene storyteller Rosemary Georgeson’s experiences in the commercial fishing industry, and playwright Marie Clement’s longstanding project Women in Fish: Hours of Water. Directed by Rosemary Georgeson, this beautiful film illuminates the often-overlooked stories of Indigenous women in the fishing industry. The film screening and a virtual discussion with the filmmaker will take place on Friday, October 15 at 7:00 p.m. over ZOOM. This program is funded by a Bridge Street Sponsorship from Mass Humanities and is part of our year-long Women’s Work project. Free and open to the public.
Films about the commercial fishing industry and other aspects of the working waterfront are screened on the third Friday of each month at 7:00 p.m. In person screenings take place in the theater of the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park’s Corson Maritime Learning Center, located at 33 William Street, unless noted otherwise. Presented by New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center and New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park.
