US Special: Documenting America, with Nina Berman, Andrea Bruce, and Jon Lowenstein
NOOR’s American visual storytellers Nina Berman, Andrea Bruce, and Jon Lowenstein reflect on their experience reporting within the tense political and social climate in America today. Considering the upcoming U.S Presidential election only a month away and the three-fold crisis happening throughout America — there is alot to talk about. The Black Lives Matter movement has forever changed the dimensions of civil responsibility in the U.S, indeed Jon Lowenstein will discuss his work following Jedidiah Brown and other Black activists in Chicago for his upcoming feature Documentary film The Advocate. Andrea Bruce will share an exclusive sneak-peek into her project “Our Democracy” that explores how the meaning of democracy itself can vary from one community to another. Last but not least, Nina Berman speaks on her experience photographing American alt-right groups, and her time in New York at the frontline of the COVID-19 Pandemic in the global hotspot and how she watched this bustling city turn into an eery dystopia.
