Assistant Professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Michael Burton and his UNL team create animated films that “recover visibilities of people who are mostly left out of the cultural and historical record.” For this exhibition we look at Anna, a film based on the true story of an enslaved woman who jumped to her freedom in early 19th century Washington, D.C.

Artist Talk & Reception:
