An Evening of Indigenous Short Films

Indigenous Traditional Welcome – Four Directions Aboriginal Student Centre

Nucca (Take)
Directed by Michelle Latimer
Canada, 12 minutes, 2017

Nuuca is an evocative meditation on Indigenous women’s integral connection to land and the ways in which the extractive industry’s rape of the earth is directly linked to the violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and girls.

Nimmikaage
Directed by Michelle Latimer
Canada, 3 minutes, 2015

Nimmikaage (She Dances for People) reverses the colonial lens where it is the First Nations, Métis, and Inuit wome who emerge as grounded in the real world, and the European Canadians who appear curious and exotic. The film is fortified by the emotional resonance of Tanya Tagaq‘s Flight.

Savage
Directed by Lisa Jackson
Canada, 6 minutes, 2009

On a summer day in the 1950s, a native girl watches the countryside go by from the backseat of a car. A woman at her kitchen table sings a lullaby in her Cree language. When the girl arrives at her destination, she undergoes a transformation that will turn the woman’s gentle voice into a howl of anger and pain.

Indictment: The Crimes of Shelly Chartier
Directed by Lisa Jackson and Shane Belcourt
Canada, 44 minutes, 2017

A riveting true story about the crimes of Shelly Chartier, a reclusive young woman from a small Manitoba First Nation who was sensationalized in the media as a master manipulator. This compelling story unpacks the crime and raises important questions about the Canadian justice system.

Films will be followed by a Q&A with Filmmaker Lisa Jackson.  

Seating for this event is General Admission
