The Native Film Series 2017 of the Gallup Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial (August 4-13, 2017) screens Navajo Math Circles Friday, August 4, and Saturday, August 5, at 1 p.m. both days, in the historic El Morro Theatre in downtown Gallup, New Mexico. The 98th Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial is a celebration of Native American culture, displayed through traditional dance, rodeo events, exhibitions of fine art, and parades. Representatives of the film will attend both screenings.
Zala Films publishes All That I Saw, by Sigmund M. Csicsery, the story of the disruption of the comfortable life of a Hungarian family by World War II and its aftermath, and of Hungary's slide into totalitarian rule as a Communist satellite under the Soviet Union. This second book by the author follows Almost a Soldier, and offers a firsthand account of life in postwar Hungary, of surviving both forced labor and prison, and of the defining moment of Csicsery's life: the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The book is now available at Amazon in color, B&W and Kindle versions.
Nandeebie Screen, an inaugural First Peoples film festival, will screen Navajo Math Circles during its May 20-21 program at the Redland Performing Arts Centre in Cleveland (Nandeebie), Queensland, Australia. The film opens the festival on Saturday, May 20, 10 a.m., on the lands of the Quandamooka people. The event offers an eclectic mix of short and feature films, documentaries and digital arts screenings, Screenings will explore themes of science, eldership, art resistance, ceremony, gender fluidity, virtual reality and some homages to modern day icons. View the festival program.
Zala Films' The Thursday Club is now available to livestream at Amazon. In October 1967, the filmmaker was beaten at an antiwar demonstration in Oakland, California. Thirty years later, he set out to find the police officers who were present at that event—his best clue, a news photograph of himself getting clubbed. The Thursday Club is for anyone interested in the explosive social movements of the 1960s, whether they empathize with the protesters or the police. (If you want your own DVD of the film, you can purchase one on Amazon, or order one from Zala Films.)
The National Math Festival will feature Navajo Math Circles on Saturday, April 22, 10 a.m., as part of an all-day free, public program at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. The math festival brings together some of the most fascinating mathematicians of our time to inspire and challenge participants to see math in new and exciting ways. Offerings include lectures, hands-on demos, art, films, performances, puzzles, games, children's book readings, and more. Read about Navajo Math Circles and watch the festival video.
Zala Films has completed two short videos for the Navajo Nation Math Circles project. They can be viewed at the project's website.
