The Mellon Indigenous Arts Initiative presents the film "Kissed by Lighting" by celebrated Mohawk filmmaker and artist Shelley Niro. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Niro and musician ElizaBeth Hill, whose music is featured in the film. Karenne Wood, director of Virginia Indian Programs at Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, will moderate the Q&A. This event is concurrent with Niro's and Hill's residency at UVA as Mellon Indigenous Arts Visiting Fellows.
