Join your West Side neighbors for a movie screening and open discussion about 'The Foreigners Home.' We will dive into the question 'Who is the Foreigner and who decides.' As the West Side and St. Paul residents continue to come up against the question of who belongs and who decides, we want to provide a space where we can have bold and courageous conversations. This event is hosted by the Indigenous Womxn and Womxn of Color table of WSCO in partnership with the Riverview Library.

Movie is recommended for teens and adults.
Snacks will be provided, and we will have activities for children.
About the film:
The Foreigner’s Home is a 57 minute documentary film that explores the vision and work of Toni Morrison through “The Foreigner’s Home,” the 2006 exhibition she guest-curated at the Louvre. Morrison invited renowned artists whose work also deals with the experience of cultural and social displacement to join her in a public conversation that she had been pursuing for years through her own research and writing and in her teaching at Princeton University. The film expands that conversation, combining exclusive and unreleased footage of the Nobel Laureate in dialogue with artists—first, in Paris in 2006 and then, in 2015, at her home in New York state—with extensive archival film footage, music, and still images to present a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, “foreignness,” and art’s redemptive power. https://www.theforeignershome.com/
