Screening to air films on missing or murdered Indigenous women and girls

Short films highlighting issues around missing or murdered Indigenous women and girls are the subject of a free public screening on the University of Windsor campus Thursday, February 15.

The Aboriginal Education Centre and the Arts Council Windsor & Region will show:

  • Souvenir, a series of four films by First Nations filmmakers that remix archival footage to address Indigenous identity and representation, reframing Canadian history through a contemporary lens; and
  • This River, a documentary that offers an Indigenous perspective on the devastating experience of searching for a loved one who has disappeared.

The event is set for room 1100 of the Ed Lumley Centre for Engineering Innovation at 7 p.m.

It follows on campus activities to call attention to the issue of violence towards Indigenous woman and children, says Aboriginal outreach co-ordinator Kathryn Pasquach.

This River will carry the same theme about Indigenous women and Canada’s need to do justice for them,” she says.
