Voices of the Rainforest

October 21 @ 6:00 pm

Free admission, but tickets are required

STEVEN FELD, Director and Producer

Voices of the Rainforest is an experiential documentary about the ecological and aesthetic coevolution of Papua New Guinea’s Bosavi rainforest region and its inhabitants. The film immerses viewers in the rainforest, making myriad connections between the everyday sounds of the rainforest biosphere and the creative practices of the Bosavi people who sing to, with, and about it. Following the screening, Steven Feld will discuss the film with Amahl Bishara, an associate professor of anthropology at Tufts University.

Film Screening (90 min.) and Discussion.

Co-sponsored by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology & Ethnology, Documentary Educational Resources, the Film Study Center at Harvard University, the Sensory Ethnography Lab, and the Harvard Art Museums.
