Premiere of the short documentary film Mosaic. This film will be in English with Spanish subtitles.
Commissioned by the Western Massachusetts Health Equity Network and created by local filmmaker Michelle Falcón Fontánez, Mosaic highlights the transformational work of local leaders of color and other voices from the Connecticut River Valley to the Berkshires–including the stories of local Berkshire community members and BRIDGE leader Florence Afanukoe and long-time Berkshire resident Arthur Wright.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and community conversation facilitated by BRIDGE CEO and Founding Director Gwendolyn VanSant, National Drum Major for Justice awardee for BRIDGE’s mutual aid work on behalf of the most vulnerable during the pandemic. This recognition clearly highlights the impact and significance of the work that BRIDGE has been catalyzing for the past 15 years within its community and the need for programs like these to continue. VanSant will be joined by Jessica Collins, Public Health Institute, Sasha Jimenez, Planned Parenthood/Mosaic Film Committee, Colin Adams, Associate Professor of Sociology/Berkshire Community College and Dr. Lara Setti /Community Health Programs with featured film participants, Florence Afanukoe and Arthur Wright.
