IndigiFemme: Body Sovereignties

Our film program begins with the self-discoveries of an Indigenous child, the focus of Cree/Métis director Gail Maurice's latest short narrative, Assini. Inuk director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril illuminates complex relationships in an outpost in Nunavut in AVILIAQ (ENTWINED). Celebrated iconoclasts Shelley Niro and Kent Monkman use sharp satire to resist colonial narratives in their award- winning experimental films, while African and Cherokee multi-media artist Indira Allegra poetically explores healing her sexuality.
