Beyond Resilience: Spotlight: In The Making

On Thursday, March 25 at 3pm ET, Firelight Media presented a virtual screening and livestream Q&A centering women, non-binary, and AAPI filmmakers and artists behind IN THE MAKING, Firelight Media’s documentary short film series in partnership with PBS American Masters.

The event featured virtual screenings of the short documentaries Maia Cruz Palileo: Becoming the Moon and Jamaica Heolimeleikalani Osorio: This Is the Way We Rise, followed by a livestream Q&A with filmmakers Ligaiya Romero and Ciara Lacy alongside Maia Cruz Palileo, an artist featured in the documentary series. The event was moderated by Chloë Walters-Wallace, manager of Artist Programs at Firelight Media, with opening remarks by Firelight Media President Marcia Smith.

IN THE MAKING follows the lives and journeys of emerging BIPOC cultural artists who bring insight and originality to their artistic craft. The series features eight cinematic and character-driven shorts by emerging BIPOC filmmakers – most of whom graduated from Firelight Media’s Documentary Lab – and explores the artistic process of up-and-coming creatives through non-fiction storytelling. The series was nominated for a 2021 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Short-Form Series - Reality/Nonfiction.
