Dock-u-mentaries: Working the Boats: Masters of the Craft @ ZOOM

Join us on Zoom for our July Dock-u-mentaries screening and discussion of the film series, Working the Boats: A Cape Verdean American Longshoremen Union by filmmaker Claire Andrade-Watkins. You can also watch the films on your own time on Kanopy or Youtube.

Click here to join the Zoom meeting at 7:00pm.

Longshoremen are an important part of the working waterfront, unloading cargo ships in the port of New Bedford. The Cape Verdean community in New Bedford has long been involved in the International Longshoremen’s Association Union. This film explores the ILA and the Cape Verdean community in Providence, RI.

This film screening is a part of our series of programs related to our latest exhibit, “We Came to Fish, We Came to Work: Stories of Immigration.” This exhibit explores stories of immigration and cultural heritage on New Bedford’s working waterfront. Over the next 8 months, we will look at cultural heritage through a variety of programs including film screenings, cooking and craft demos, performances, and talks, which will be offered virtually until we are able to re-open the Center.

The Center’s 2020 exhibits and programs are funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Creative Commonwealth Initiative, and the Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and New Bedford Cultural Councils. Our film series is sponsored by BankFive.

Dock-u-mentaries: Seadrift @ ZOOM

Dock-u-mentaries: Seadrift @ ZOOM

Save the date for our August Dock-u-mentaries film, Seadrift. Following the virtual screening, we will be joined by filmmaker Tim Tsai for a discussion of the film. Stay tuned for the links to join the screening.

In 1979, a Vietnamese refugee shoots and kills a white crab fisherman at the public town docks in Seadrift, TX. What began as a dispute over fishing territory erupts into violence and ignites a maelstrom of boat burnings, KKK intimidation, and other hostilities against Vietnamese refugees along the Gulf Coast. Set during the early days of Vietnamese arrival in the U.S., Seadrift is a feature documentary that examines the circumstances that led up to the shooting and its dramatic aftermath, and reveals the unexpected consequences that continue to reverberate today. Click here to watch the trailer for Seadrift.

Thank you to BankFive for supporting our film series.
