Spaces of Exception

Film Screening and Conversation
Apr 23, 2024, 5:00 pm7:30 pm



Event Description

The Princeton American Indian & Indigenous Studies Working Group and Princeton Students for Justice in Palestine are pleased to present Spaces of Exception, a film by Matt Peterson and Malek Rasamny that comes out of the long-term multimedia project "The Native and the Refugee" and profiles the American Indian reservation in the United States alongside the Palestinian refugee camp in the Middle East. These spaces of exception are ones whose position in the struggles for Native and Palestinian autonomy are essential.

After the screening, director Matt Peterson will be in conversation with lawyer Lena Widdi and organizer and DJ Fatin Jarara (both of Al-Awda: Palestine Right to Return Coalition) as well as well as tribal justice activist Tara Houska (Couchiching First Nation) and Princeton University professor Ikaika Ramones (Kanaka ʻŌiwi/Native Hawaiian).
