Film: CareForce One Travelogues

Saturday, March 17, 2018

2–4 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

Celebrate the New York premiere of the Sundance-supported docu-series CareForce One Travelogues (Yael Melamede, 2017, 28 min.) with a screening and a lively program with artists, thinkers, and advocates, focused on care. In the series, artist Marisa Morán Jahn, her son Choco, and their buddy Anjum Asharia hop in the CareForce One, their fifty-year-old station wagon, to travel from New York to Miami, meeting up with nannies, housekeepers, caregivers, and allies along the way and exploring how care intersects with some of today’s most pressing issues—including immigration, the legacy of slavery, and racial discrimination. The program is part of CareForce, a public art project that amplifies the voices of caregivers.

Program:

  • Screening: CareForce One Travelogues
  • Keynote talk: Saskia Sessen, Columbia University
  • Panel: Yael Melamede, Oscar- and Emmy-winning filmmaker; Allison Julian, nanny and organizer, National Domestic Workers Alliance and We Dream in Black; Ilana Berger, Executive Director, Hand in Hand; and Hrag Vartanian, Editor-in-Chief and co-founder, Hyperallergic
  • Music: Revolutionary Nepali songs performed by Narbada Chetri, Adhikaar for Human Rights; Venezuelan-born, Brooklyn-based musician MPeach (aka Mariana Martin Capriles); beats by Larisa Kingston Mann (aka DJ Ripley)

Free with Museum general admission. Purchase tickets for David Bowie is separately.
