Success! Thank you to all who participated in our online screening & discussion event on 27 February

Thank you to all who participated in the film screening & discussion last night, “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” – Filmvorführung und -gespräch im Rahmen der Ausstellung “Schwarz ist der Ozean”. The transcript was saved so that any questions or comments that may have been missed or there wasn’t time to respond, will also be considered.

A huge thank you to Exil – Osnabrücker Zentrum für Flüchtlinge e.V. and the individuals who organized, moderated and provided technical support to our evening.

A sample questions:

1. Is the film an analysis of Karl May’s work or the character of Winnetou? 

No. As our film synopsis states, this film is on a) racism, white supremacist ideology and/or Eurocentrism in the misuse of Natives and other peoples and their cultures, well-intentioned or not, b) the effects of such behaviors and connection to other contemporary issues, and c) on correcting commonly believed stereotypes by providing accurate knowledge about Natives primarily from Natives.
