Let's Talk Reconciliation Film Dialogue
Join us for a screening of the National Film Board production titled "Reel Injun", 2009, 1 hour 28 minutes. In this feature-length documentary, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes an entertaining and insightful look at the portrayal of North American Indigenous people throughout a century of cinema. Featuring hundreds of clips from old classics as well as recent releases, the film traces the evolution of the "Hollywood Indian". Diamond guides the audience on a journey across America to some of cinema's most iconic landscapes and conducts candid interviews with celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson and Jim Jarmusch. The film is a loving look at cinema through the eyes of the people who appeared in its very first flickering images and have survived to tell their stories in their own way.
Following the screening, join us for a Reconciliation Dialogue facilitated by Karl Dockstader and Sean VanderKlis, hosts of the One Dish, One Mic podcast. The discussion will be recorded as a special podcast edition.
