Advanced CMLTD doctoral student in Tara Conley will share her video ethnography ‪#‎Brackish‬, which she recently published in collaboration with ColorLines: “Directed and produced by Tara L. Conley. Brackish follows native New Orleanian and hurricane Katrina survivor Kellen Smith on his journey from a 23-year-old aspiring professional bowler, golfer, and music producer to a 33-year-old telecommunications technician, partner to his fiancee, and father to his 9-year-old stepdaughter and newborn son. It’s a story of wading in the waters with near dwellers who have experienced rupture and being ruptured. It’s also a celebration of the lives of those who have survived and found strength in family, music, and tradition.” See more here: http://brackishfilm.com/
