AMNH Hosts Margaret Mead Film Festival This Weekend


Just because the online science community is falling apart does not mean that anthropology and science have stopped happening in the real world. This weekend, the American Museum of Natural History will host their annual Margaret Mead Film Festival, showcasing a bevy of ethnographic films.

Three that have caught my eye are Tales from the Organ Trade, the Beautiful Game, and Heart of Sky, Heart of Earth. I'll be writing about these here next week, and I would love to hear your thoughts on these—and any others.

I'll be on-site Sunday afternoon. If you are interested in saying hello, please reach out via Twitter @krystaldcosta.

We'll return to more regular scheduled posting on Monday. In the meantime, the human experience can be a rough one—please try to be kind to each other.
