Updates! Making a documentary of this type is an emotionally and physically exhausting experience, especially in that as an indigenous or POC, you are still having to deal with racism, discrimination and #colonialism2018 on a daily basis. It is both a professional and very personal experience (a necessary one, I felt), but which takes its toll to your health, finances, everything. A lot of sacrifices are involved, and in being in Germany, also the reality of being away from your family. In my case, I’ve not seen most of my family in 7 years.
Since before the premiere on Feb.11th, I’ve been under doctor’s orders to totally rest. But of course, life, circumstances and society just doesn’t allow that, so I am having to be very limited in how I use energy and time. Here are some updates & infos:
1) There will be further screenings available in the future, and we will share the events as soon as they are confirmed.
2) A screening copy of “Forget Winnetou!” will be available in April. Both will have the same English and German audio, with one version available in English subtitles, and one in German subtitles. If you are interested in screening our film at your university, group, etc., please contact us through our website form with queries: contact.
