Canada Film Day 150
At the Saskatoon Public Library – Frances Morrision branch (downtown location)
7pm – April 19th – FREE
PAVED Arts is excited to partner with the SPL as part of a nationwide celebration of Canadian film. We’ll be featuring a short documentary by PAVED member Andrea Cessna, ‘Poetic Call to Action’ which will precede the award-winning REEL INJUN.
Reel Injun is an enlightening documentary about the way Indigenous people have been depicted in film from the silent era to the present day.
Director Neil Diamond takes the audience on a trip through time to explore the history of the “Hollywood Indian” and offers a refreshing, candid and personal analysis, tracing how these cinematic images have shaped and influenced the understanding of Indigenous culture and history.
“Impeccably well researched and crafted, Reel Injun neatly walks the line in balancing entertainment and education.” — Todd Brown, Twitch Film
