Ofrenda Fest: The Elements – Indigenous Film Program Plus Song Circle & Storytelling
April 23, 2-9:30pm
Ofrenda Fest Schedule:
2-5pm: Song Circle and Storytelling
We know sound and frequencies can change our mood and vibrations. Many indigenous communities use sound, chants, icaros or songs as prayers during their rituals and ceremonies. During the Ofrenda fest program we will offer song circles with some of these communities like the Hunikuin, Mexica, Sapara, Shipibo, Ramapough, among others.
6-9pm: Film Program – Indigenous Voices
Ofrenda Fest is a festival that promotes art, film, music, photography and ancient traditions. Our goal is to offer a space to honor and reconnect with the Earth through ritual and ceremonies in a fusion with the arts, in New York City.
This year we are uniting forces with the Indigenous Forum at the United Nations to combine activities with Indigenous communities that are participating at the Forum.
The Elements – Indigenous Film Program invites filmmakers and Indigenous communities to submit their films about ancestral rituals and traditions around the world. We want to use this opportunity to promote respect and care about ancient cultures, ritual ceremonies, and the environment.
