Film Streams is a nonprofit organization dedicated to enhancing the cultural environment of the Omaha area community through the presentation and discussion of film as an art form. Given the mutual alignment of our missions, Squishtalks facilitated two post-screening conversations following the showing of Black Girl and On the Bowery.
All of the conversation participants said the dialog made a difference to them, some remarking as follows:
“I often see movies by myself, then have no one to talk about them. I appreciate thoughtful, considered viewpoints.”
“Having to sit down and have a discussion left me energized. It made me think “art film” should only be watched with an accompanying discussion.”
“I enjoyed the generationally diverse viewpoints that were shared.”
“It helped me feel more positive about Omaha to know that people like the Squishtalk participants are here. I left feeling very invigorated. Inspired, even.”
“Other people noticed things that I did not noticed. And it is nice to here a different perspective as well.”
