    Throughout the 1970’s, fires consumed the South Bronx. Black and Puerto Rican residents bore the blame for the devastation even as they battled daily to save their neighborhoods. Decade of Fire (2018) utilizes a cache of archival research and home movie footage to confront and challenge the rampant racially-charged stereotypes that served to dehumanize the residents of her community.

    Filmmakers, educators, and organizers, Vivian Vazquez Irizarry, Co-Director and Neyda Martinez, Producer will share the approaches they employed to lift the stories of the community’s unsung heroes. They will discuss the keys to working with authenticity and accountability in order to create a shared and collective filmmaking experience.
