Filmmaker, Scholar and media activist María Agui Carter’s films navigate the tension between national and community narratives, and explore the politics of race and gender in telling story. Using her latest film REBEL, winner of a 2014 Erik Barnouw Award for best historical film in America as a case study, she will discuss imaginative ways of creating compelling documentary with limited material (for REBEL she had one photo), and share her process in fundraising for, producing, and getting distribution for films that place characters from the margins into the center of American media, as well as discuss her latest works in progress.

Shrouded in mystery and long the subject of debate, the amazing story of Loreta Janeta Velazquez, a Confederate soldier turned Union Spy, is one of the Civil War's most gripping forgotten narratives. This Cuban immigrant was in combat 150 years ago—one of the estimated 1000 women who secretly served as soldiers during the American Civil War. Rebel is the story of a woman, a myth, and the politics of national memory.
