The Lied Center’s MOSAIC series strives to present work that is idea-driven, curiosity-fueled, and radically inclusive and the new MOSAIC Film Festival features two films that embody those ideals. MOSAIC Film Festival will feature Chief Standing Bear’s Journey to Statuary Hall(co-directed by Ingrid Holmquist and Judi gaiashkibos) and Guanajuato Norte (co-directed by Ingrid Holmquist and Sana A. Malik).

Both films are free to attend or stream, but tickets are required. There is also the option to select a paid ticket to support the Lied Center.
