Want to Help Make a Film Come to Life?

submitted by jonesc@augsburg.edu

Have you heard about Augsburg College’s Senior Film Keystone class? We are making a short independent film called “Medallion.” Our film is about Ben who is seven years into his sobriety, and loses his wife to a car accident forcing him to come to terms with his alcoholism without his anchor. He is faced with the decision to either forget the life that he has built with her or face reality and continue to honor her memory. With our film, we hope to combat the stigma surrounding alcoholics and addicts in film as we build a new narrative.

To help fund our film, we have started an IndieGoGo and we are past halfway to our $2,000 goal with 7 days left. Please check out the site at the link below, and donate as you are able.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/medallion-augsburg-college-keystone-film#/
Your donation would help us rent equipment, secure locations, costume our characters, feed our cast and crew, purchase insurance, and submit our film to festivals.

If you would rather, please follow us and share our page on your social media!

As you see fit, please pass this message along to people that would be interested in donating or following us on social media. We want to reach as many people as possible!

Join us for an open mic evening to share the art of resistance: poetry, music, visual arts and manifestos that explore the topic of political resistance of Latinx and Spanish-speaking communities. Readings can be in English and/or Spanish. Share your music, show your art, read something that inspires you! All are welcome to share or to simply listen and be present.

We frame resistance as cultural expressions that unite us in our opposition to oppression and that create paths to freedom and promote justice for all.

Spanish and Cross-Cultural Studies faculty would be happy to help you choose a reading in Spanish or English to share or you can choose to write your own. Artwork can include posters, photos or paintings. Music can be of your own composition or created by others. Choose something that imoves you that you want to share with others!

A Google sign up sheet will be available soon with more information. In the meantime, please direct your questions or ideas to Kate Reinhardt at reinhard@augsburg.edu or Sarah Degnar Riveros at riveross@augsburg.edu
