The Forest City Gallery and the Office of Indigenous Initiatives at Western are pleased to present a screening of "Reel Injun," followed by a discussion with Sally Kewayosh and Sara Mai Chitty.
Join us for a community screening of the documentary film Reel Injun, followed by a discussion with Indigenous filmmaker and storyteller Sally Kewayosh. The film traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Indigenous people across North America from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Indigenous and non-Indigenous film celebrities, activists, film critics, and historians.
This event is supported by the Forest City Gallery, the Office of Indigenous Initiatives, the Public Humanities at Western, and the School for Advanced Studies in the Arts & Humanities.
