Virtual screening to feature films celebrating Indigenous cultures

Three short films from the National Film Board are available for a screening Tuesday to conclude National Indigenous History Month.

Presented by the Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre and the Arts Council - Windsor and Region, the virtual event will enable viewers to tune in from their own living rooms.

The three featured films are:

  • Woman Dress -Pre-contact, a Two Spirit person named Woman Dress travels the plains, gathering and sharing stories. Featuring archival images and dramatized re-enactments, this film shares a oral story of director Thirza Cuthand’s family, honouring and respecting Woman Dress without imposing colonial binaries on them.
  • Inuk shop - Inuit filmmaker Jobie Weetaluktuk mixes archival and new footage to make a statement about the appropriation of his culture throughout history.
  • Lake - Cree director Alexandra Lazarowich riffs off classic verité cinema to craft a contemporary portrait of Métis women net fishing in Northern Alberta.
