About the content:
“Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” (https://forgetwinnetou.com/) by Berlin-based director D.S. Red Haircrow, BSc., M.A. (https://redhaircrow.com/), (Writer, Psychologist, Educator & Filmmaker) is an award-winning documentary about racism, cultural appropriation and Eurocentrism from the perspective of Native Americans in Germany. In most films about Native Americans, European narratives or indigenous experiences in North America are rendered. This ignores the fact that Native Americans today also live in “Indian-crazy” Germany and are confronted with stereotypes based on Karl May’s Winnetou. The film will be made available as a vimeostream; participants admitted to the waiting room will be unlocked at the beginning of the screening.
