About the Festival: The American Museum of Natural History’s 2019 Margaret Mead Film Festival, October 17–20, features documentary films, shorts, and other media that increase our understanding of the complexity and diversity of peoples and cultures around the world. Inspired by anthropologist Margaret Mead’s groundbreaking use of film and photography, the Mead celebrates ever-changing modes of storytelling, new technologies, and increased access to communities near and far while presenting the best in non-fiction film and hybrid works.
About Eating Up Easter: The people of Rapa Nui, also known as Easter Island, are fighting for their cultural heritage, for job opportunities, and for an island clear of trash. Meet a local ecologist, two musicians, and the island’s first Indigenous governor as they work to balance growth with sustainability on an island overflowing with tourists and growing piles of litter.
