“WRAPture: A Public Art Project”: The film follows a climate justice art project from Washington DC’s low-income Anacostia neighborhood to Barobaishdia, a remote Bangladeshi island on the frontlines of climate change. Bangladeshi-American artist Monica Jahan Bose leads a dozen women farmers and over 200 Washingtonians to co-create 65 climate-themed saris, which wrap five Washington buildings. While they work on the saris, the participants recite poetry, sing, and dance, creating a trans-border community.  The film includes rare footage and testimony of the impacts of climate change on coastal women farmers and the power of art to bring about change. It premiered at the Kennedy Center in Washington at a joint event with the Smithsonian.
