Cahal McLaughlin is chair of Film Studies at Queen's University Belfast, a documentary filmmaker, and the director of the Prisons Memory Archive. His latest films are We Were There (2014) on the role of women in the Maze and Long Kesh Prison, and We Never Give Up II (2012) on reparations in South Africa. His publications include Recording Memories from Political Conflict: a filmmakers journey (2010: Intellect).

Through an interactive discussion, McLaughlin will present his newest project Centre for Documentary Research as part of the Pluralities Nonfiction Conference. (Nov. 9 at 8:20 am).

#Pluralities will use nonfiction film to engage the humanities in nuanced dialogue. It will bring together a cosmopolitan group of thought leaders, creative thinkers and learning communities to participate in the same global exchange as documentary filmmakers. Pluralities will also offer far-reaching avenues for national and international nonfiction filmmakers and scholars to exhibit, examine and exchange their work in one platform. In addition, it will provide an umbrella for the various creative and scholarly pursuits that are housed at the Documentary Film Institute.

Pluralities - Nonfiction Film Conference

Emily Smith Beitiks, an associate director of the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at SFSU, has witnessed how our society treats people with disabilities by growing up with a disabled mother. She believes that disability should not be seen as a tragedy or to be pity, and feels that having a disabled mother transformed her for the better. Now, Beitiks is an expert on disability justice and reproductive justice issues for people with disabilities, including sterilization and prenatal testing. Her dissertation, "Building the Normal Body: Disability and the Techno-Makeover," looked at cultural stories told about disabled bodies normalized with science and technology. She has taught at University of Minnesota, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, and in Ghana with course topics covering social justice, cultural understandings of "the body," and the role of technology in American culture.

Smith Beitiks will be a panelist for the Pluralities Nonfiction Conference at San Francisco State University (Nov. 9 11:00 am) discussing disabilities and filmmaking.

#Pluralities will use nonfiction film to engage the humanities in nuanced dialogue. It will bring together a cosmopolitan group of thought leaders, creative thinkers and learning communities to participate in the same global exchange as documentary filmmakers. Pluralities will also offer far-reaching avenues for national and international nonfiction filmmakers and scholars to exhibit, examine and exchange their work in one platform.

Kelly Gallagher is an animator and filmmaker exploring politically radical left histories through collage animation, found footage essays, and experimental live action. Her animations, experimental films and documentaries have screened internationally at venues including: Ann Arbor Film Festival, London ICA Artists’ Biennial, LA Film Forum, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Traverse City Film Festival, and Anthology Film Archives.

As we live in a time of political division, Gallagher reverts to animation to manifest power and protest. If you are interested in these ideas, you are invited to watch Gallagher speak at the Pluralities Conference (Nov. 8 9:10am).
