Reel Injun: On the Trail of the Hollywood Indian
Wednesday, November 3
7 p.m. (English with French subtitles)
Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond traces the cinematic depiction of First Peoples from the silent film era to the present day, only to find the future of Aboriginal cinema in the unlikeliest of places: Canada’s North. Reel Injun presents an affectionate look at cinema, as seen through the eyes of people who appeared in its very first flickering images and have survived to tell their stories in their own way. The film will be followed by a discussion. Presented in partnership with the National Film Board of Canada. Free tickets at Museum Box Office.
