This is the first in a series of Spotlight Articles: vlog posts, interviews, and articles exploring VAFF’s 2018 season theme of INFUSIAN. Over the course of 2018, we’ll be profiling individuals and organizations who are pushing the boundaries, creating art, film, and change by infusing their work with a diverse mix of traditional and contemporary influences. These artists, filmmakers, musicians, thinkers, and agitators are changing the world in which we live by bringing a unique perspective based on their lived and cultural experiences. It is through this act of enrichment that they are renewing society with fresh and interesting ideas, and new and unexpected takes on ancient traditions. We encourage you to stay tuned and join us on this fantastic journey!
