Stories from the Heart of Turtle Island: A screening curated by ACA artist-in-residence Redsun//Sahgothé
Join us on Friday, November 17th, at the Black Lodge for an evening screening of Indigenous Short Films!
The event runs from 7-9 pm and is free to all.
Pulled from the Winnipeg Film Group’s archival collection by Denesuline/Nehitho artist in residence, Redsun//Sahgothé — with Support from Archive/Counter-Archive.
Explore voices of resistance, truth-telling, and comedy from the Heart of Turtle Island, with objects of curiosity from the WFG’s archive. Exclusive prints by Redsun//Sahgothé will be for sale.
Archive/Counter-Archive (ACA) is a project and research network dedicated to activating and preserving audiovisual archives created by Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, Inuit), Black communities and People of Colour, women, LGBT2Q+ and immigrant communities. Political, resistant, and community-based, counter-archives disrupt conventional narratives and enrich our histories.
In the spring of 2023, Artist-in-Residence Redsun//Sahgothé was brought on board. They have been given carte blanche to both create and critique, to recognize the possibilities that the Film Group has opened up for independent filmmakers over the course of its history, but also to acknowledge the exclusions and elisions that complicate and compromise these achievements.
We hope you can make it!
