Sonya will talk about identity and representation, and her road to becoming a filmmaker.
According to her bio:
Sonya became interested in film because she wanted to see people like her mother as a starship captain on Star Trek, or fighting aliens like Ripley. She wanted a Native hero that existed in the present or in the future, to show us that we made it.
Sonya asks: for better or worse, how do today’s representations shape the self-image of people like her?
