Dance Mission’s COMHAR Festival presents Art, Healing, and Public Health: A film festival

Jan 7-10, 2021

COVID-19 has magnified almost every existing structural inequality in our society. And yet, when it comes to health, people are still speaking about wellness as a question of personal rather than social responsibility.  Presented by Dance Mission’s COMHAR Festival, this four day film festival examines the intersection of health and socio-economic / racial inequities, and how art plays a critical role in the path towards wellness. Art does more than deliver a message. It is itself medicine.

Each day we will host a different free, online screening of a film that dives into these topics of art, healing, and public health.  Films will be shown via Zoom (registration required – see below) and also on Dance Brigade’s Dance Mission’s Facebook page.  Note: Zoom is recommended for best screening experience. Tickets are free. Donations gratefully accepted.

Schedule:
Jan 7 at 7pm PST: Unnatural Causes… Is inequality making us sick? A documentary by California Newsreel. Tickets.
Jan 8 at 7pm PST: reimagining the city as our own. A film by Skywatchers and Irene Gustafson. Tickets.
Jan 9 at 7pm PST: This Ain’t Your Mother’s Theater Company! A documentary by Bruce Schmiechen featuring the Medea Project. Tickets.
Jan 10 at 7pm PST: FREE: The Power of Performance. A documentary on Destiny Arts. Tickets.
