CRRES Affiliate and Media School Professor Terri Francis recently published an interview with Jamaican filmmaker Esther Figueroa in Feminist Media Histories. The published conversation is titled "Urgent Media and Nontheatrical Ecologies: Jamaican Filmmaker Esther Figueroa in Conversation."
Hosted by BFC/A, CLACS, and IU Cinema, Figueroa visited the IU Bloomington campus back in 2019 for the Black Sun/White Moon series. This series, hosted at IU Cinema and the IU Libraries Moving Image Archive Screening Room, marked the 50th year since Neil Armstrong’s moon landing, bringing together films under the theme of "Exploring Black Cinematic Imaginations of Space."
Esther Figueroa is a feminist filmmaker working on behalf of the environmental movement in Jamaica. Her films include Fly Me to the Moon, Jamaica for Sale, Massa God Fish Can Done, and Cockpit Country is Our Home.
