Teióia’ks iakwateró:roks “We watch movies” Film Series: SHORT DOC NIGHT
January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join Woodland Cultural Centre Art Department for a virtual film screening of a selection of short films from Indigenous creators across Turtle Island.
Stories Are in Our Bones – Janine Windolph
In this layered short film, filmmaker Janine Windolph takes her young sons fishing with their kokum (grandmother), a residential school survivor who retains a deep knowledge and memory of the land. The act of reconnecting with their homeland is a cultural and familial healing journey for the boys, who are growing up in the city. It’s also a powerful form of resistance for the women.
Lake Winnipeg Project: Fisher River – Kevin Settee
This film narrows in on stories of generosity and perseverance in Fisher River Cree Nation in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Stories include the purchase and distribution of fish on a community and intra-community level, as well as stories of mothers who experienced unique challenges of their own while continuing to provide support and care to their families and communities.
Monologue Harmonics – Janet Marie Rogers & Bawaadan Artist Collective
Monologue Harmonics is a seemingly paradoxical visual and sonic offering. This journey mirrors a reality not unlike the current Indigenous experience, with respect to constant colonial resistance, where coming to terms with lost cultural distinction is fast becoming the new culture of today/tomorrow.
Join us after for a Live Q & A with the film makers!
