Natalia Payne Curates Film Screenings


Natalia Payne, a Santa Fe High junior, is a young curator with the Gen-erate program at SITE Santa Fe. She will be recommending a new film every week in May, which is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The films will highlight the marginalization of certain peoples in popular media and present underrepresented Asian and Asian-American actors, animators, writers and directors.

Because of Covid, the films will be screened online. Here are the links for viewing two of the films:  (May 15) (May 22)

Gen-erate is a new program through SITE’s Education Department that offers three Santa Fe teens the chance to curate public programs at SITE and to engage in intergenerational programming that responds to the themes of SITE exhibitions, focuses on topical issues of local importance, and brings teens and adults together for constructive dialogue through the exploration of contemporary art and expression.
