Agnes's Open Secret: The Second Edition continues as a series composed of screenings, conversations, and workshops with guest curator, Jennifer Smith, and filmmaker, Jennifer Dysart.

Memory Keeper, the title of this iteration curated by Smith, is a look back at the work of Dysart who uses archives as a source material and pieces together stories of Indigenous life using archival material. The materials used were most often documentation taken by settlers of Indigenous communities. Jennifer’s films tell a story that was not intended when the original footage was taken, but that tells a narrative through an Indigenous lens.

Jennifer Dysart and Jennifer Smith co-host an afternoon of exploring the use of archives in filmmaking. Jennifer Dysart works with participants to think about the creative use of archives. Jennifer Smith talks about personal archives, accessing this content and caring for it.

Curated by Nasrin Himada

Memory Keeper is a partnership between Agnes Etherington Art Centre and the National Indigenous Media Arts Coalition (NIMAC). This workshop is in partnership with Vulnerable Media Lab. Supported by the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund, Queen’s University.
