Associate Professor Maple Razsa (Global Studies) and Milton Guillén ’15 will be screening The Maribor Uprisings: A Live Participatory Film for its world premiere at CPH:DOX (Copenhagen, March 20) and its North American premiere at Hot Docs (Toronto, April 27-May 7), two of the largest and most prestigious documentary film festivals in the world. The film, which started as Guillén’s honors project in anthropology, grew into a major collaboration with Razsa. Edited with the award-winning Mary Lampson (Harlan County, USA; This Changes Everything), Uprisings tells the story of the dramatic protests that brought down Maribor’s mayor before spreading across Slovenia and toppling the national government. Drawing on footage shot by dozens of protesters, the film positions viewers in the midst of the uprising and demands that they decide collectively in the theater how they participate—and how the film will unfold.
