Part I: 10.00 -12.00: "Never Surrender"

Introduction to the seminar

Introduction to film by Reza Shirazi
Showing film Never Surrender (2020, directed by Reza)

About the film: 

This documentary film is the result of more than two years of research and fieldwork in Bayview-Hunters Point neighbourhood, San Francisco. It narrates the community fight for environmental justice, and documents the conflict between people and government over the safety of the shipyard.

Decades of remediation work at Hunters Point Shipyard, a former military base contaminated during the Second World War and beyond, were revealed to be fraudulent and data was falsified. This turned the biggest redevelopment project in San Francisco into the biggest eco-fraud case in US history.

After the first film, there will be a panel discussion with the filmmakers and the audience. The conversation will focus on environmental justice, urban inequalities, urban development, community activism, discourse and power, and planning conflict.

Part II: 1300-1500: "Dirty Games: Olympic Evictions in Rio de Janeiro"

Introduction to film by Margit Ystanes
Showing film Dirty Games: Olympic Evictions in Rio de Janeiro (2017, directed by Jose Alejandro Huidobro Goya and Margit Ystanes)

About the film: 

The film follows residents in Vila Autódromo, a neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro that was decimated as the city prepared to host the 2016 Olympics. During this period, over 77 000 persons living in favelas were evicted from their homes to make space for event-related infrastructure projects. Vila Autódromo was one of these neighbourhoods slated for evictions. This film is about their struggle to preserve their neighbourhood and the context for its destruction, and it explores attachment to place and what it means to lose a home. 

After the second film, another panel discussion will continue the conversation about inequality and urban development, before turning to the use of filmmaking as a methodology for research and communication.
