Indigenous activist and actor Eugene Brave Rock (Wonder Woman) is among the guests hosted by director, photographer, and social justice advocate Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri at an event bringing together leaders of contemporary art and justice movements to share insights to inspire positive cultural and socio-political change.

Filmmaker Indrani Pal-Chaudhuri is a a Tribeca Film Festival Disruptive Innovation-awarded director, Princeton Class of 2001 alumna, and co-host of the Global People’s Summit at the United Nations

Across the United States — and the entire world — film and art have become central to ongoing movements for rights and justice, which has intensified since the killing of George Floyd, This event honors leaders and artists at the forefront of social change, engaging in dialogue about their work and perspectives on mobilizing anti-racism, equality, and social justice. This discussion is a part of the virtual opening of the exhibition “The Art of Anti-Racism and Social Justice,” an expanding archive of student art dedicated to public service and social justice. Presented in partnership with Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts, Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students, and the Freshman Seminar Program, this initiative is an extension of the 2020 Fall seminar, “Moving Millions with Art and Film for Human Rights and Social Justice,” taught by Pal-Chaudhuri.
