Nailah Jefferson's feature documentary, "Vanishing Pearls," and Nijla Mu'min's short film "Deluge" will screen this Wednesday, 8/27 at the Ingersoll Community Center in Brooklyn, NYC. The screening is part of MoCADA's Public Exchange film series and the "a/wake in the water" media exhibition, that explore the ways Black bodies experience environmental hazards and natural disaster. 

DELUGE2

"Vanishing Pearls," distributed by AFFRM, tells the story of an ongoing environmental struggle between oil and gas company BP and a Black oyster fishing community in the Louisiana Gulf. "Deluge," a short film of fantasy, trauma, and coming-of-age, tells the story of a young woman who is summoned by an order of black mermaids after her three friends drown in a sinkhole near her town in post- BP oil spill Louisiana. 

MoCADA’s Public Exchange series is a monthly community event that brings together groundbreaking programming to traditionally underrepresented areas of Public Housing in Brooklyn. The series utilizes arts programming and performances to connect the social divide between the Public Housing sector and the larger Brooklyn community.

The event starts at 6pm at Ingersoll Community Center: 177 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201. There will be a Q&A following the screening. The event is free of charge.
