The North Dakota Human Rights Film and Arts Festival is excited to welcome Clarence Monpleh as Director of Youth Programming. The position is new to the festival and was created to extend the festival’s reach and engagement with young artists and filmmakers working to document relevant human rights, civil rights, and social justice stories.
Originally from Philadelphia, Monlpeh is currently a student at Davies Highschool in Fargo, North Dakota. Energetic about film and telling stories through art, he is an active digital storyteller creating 12 short films in the past four years. He also serves as a Youth Coach with Umoja Writing Workshops, a local organization dedicated to giving voice to youth in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Through his work, Monpleh strives to positively impact the community.
The North Dakota Human Rights Film and Arts Festival returns to the historic Fargo Theatre from November 2-5, 2022, to celebrate its 6th season. Encore screenings and community discussions will take place in Bismarck, Grand Forks, Jamestown, and Minot through November. All screenings, artist’s workshops, and community discussions are free and open to the public. For updates about the festival, visit www.ndhrff.org.
