Maori Karmael Holmes' (ACG '16, '06, '05, LTA '06) experience as a NYC programmer, alongside Charlotte Ickes, for the 2017 Fall Flaherty Film Series "Out From Under" was featured on PBS.org. The program runs every other Monday night at 7:00 PM, October 2 – December 11 at the Anthology Film Archives.
Maori describes initial discussions that focused on “underground clubs and societies that have been pushed out because they weren’t accepted in the greater society,” but the overall concept grew much wider. [...] “We were interested in these actual subterranean spaces, like the subway or a prison — these spaces of containment where you feel under something, under foot, or under pressure…or when you ‘feel underwater,'” Maori adds. [...] “When people are marginalized they have to create space where they find it. Sometimes that’s liberating and sometimes that’s constricting,” muses Maori. “What our program hopes to do is explore all sides of that.”
