Connecting with Your Creative Voice and Your Ancestors on 9/21 at 12pm PT/3pm ET

A private screening and discussion of Kumina Queen with filmmaker Nyasha Laing (Yale Women Council). Nyasha, who returned to filmmaking as a healing journey while her mother was dying from ALS, traveled into the heart of the Jamaican countryside to document kumina, a vibrant, women-centered African ancestral practice. She shares reflections and prompts around storytelling as a healing tool enabling connections with our ancestors and ourselves.

Nyasha Laing is a documentarian, impact producer, writer and lawyer. Nyasha’s independent storytelling explores freedom, inspiration, and inheritance. It has been featured in and on the Pan-African Film Festival, Indie Memphis, Trinidad and Tobago Film Festival, WOMEX, Yes Magazine, BBC World Service and the Art Museum of the Americas.
