RADICAL CARE: THE AUNTIE SEWING SQUAD

RADICAL CARE: THE AUNTIE SEWING SQUAD looks at the Auntie Sewing Squad, a group of mostly women of color volunteers who came together following the U.S. government’s botched response to the COVID-19 crisis. The Aunties sew masks for farmworkers, unhoused people, refugee and immigrant groups, First Nations tribes, recently incarcerated people, Black Lives Matter demonstrators, and others in need in the U.S. Using images, voices and sounds generated by the Aunties themselves, in tandem with Kronos Quartet’s performance of Susie Ibarra’s “Pulsation,” this clip seeks to inspire others to work toward radical care in the time of coronavirus.
