Ackland Film Forum: “Fire” Watch Party and Panel
Join the Ackland Art Museum for the third film in the Ackland Film Forum’s Global Queer Cinema Series, Deepa Mehta’s Fire (1996, Canada/India). The series is a collaboration with the Film Studies Program in the Department of English and Comparative Literature at UNC-Chapel Hill, and features a selection of four international films presented in connection with the Ackland’s Close Looks digital initiative. View the selected films on your own or join them for a watch party. Watch parties will be followed by a live post-film panel discussion with scholars from around the globe.
Fire will be available to stream April 9-15, 2021 with a virtual watch party on Tuesday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. followed by a live panel discussion at 9:30 p.m. We are excited to welcome Dr. Gayatri Gopinath (New York University) for our post-film panel, who will be in conversation with Martin L. Johnson (UNC-Chapel Hill). Register for free tickets below to receive a link to stream the film and a link to attend the panel via Zoom on April 13.
