Noted indie game developer Brenda Brathwaite takes on “Difficult History,” periods such as the Holocaust, Middle Passage, Trail of Tears, and the Irish experience.
With a focus on her provocative games, such as Train, Brathwaite challenges academic learning/knowing about difficult histories, pushing you to experience strong emotions then reflection, during game-play and long afterward. These artful games are intriguing and compelling complements to narrative, poetry, photography, video, and film. Questions and discussion to follow.
