ASFF 21: TRIGGERED! Empowering Tools (online and streamed)


A powerhouse panel tackling a thorny topic with myriad aspects and facets. We all have to now find ways to negotiate tricky conversations – activating content, problematic feedback and inappropriate representations, signalling to others (and admitting to ourselves) when and how we are triggered, even when we least expect it. This large-scale conversation, chaired by Melanie Iredale, will discuss the tools of navigation and recognition and how we find space for addressing the effects of trauma. With Akua Gyamfi & Melissa Silverstein.

ASFF 21: A Radical Gaze: Sally Potter in Conversation (in-person w/ Sally online and streamed)

Sally Potter is a legendary filmmaker whose ground-breaking films have earned her a rightful place in cinema history. Trained as a dancer, Potter moved into filmmaking in the 1970s, forging a reputation as a fiercely feminist filmmaker with The Golddiggers, Orlando and The Party. Her most recent non-linear drama, The Road Not Taken, demonstrates that she remains a filmmaker of rare vision and imagination. Potter joins us for a conversation that will span five-decades of filmmaking, exploring her principles and ideas. Chaired by Mia Bays for Birds’ Eye View.  Yorkshire Museum, Museum Gardens, Museum Street, York, YO1 7FR
