Aabiziingwashi* (Bien éveillés) : Le cinéma autochtone en tournée Regards autochtones sur le Canada 


Aabiziingwashi (Bien éveillés) : Le cinéma autochtone en tournée est une série de projections pancanadiennes mettant en vedette les œuvres exceptionnelles de cinéastes autochtones produites par l’ONF. Des invités spéciaux assisteront à certains événements et prendront part aux débats qui suivront les projections. La série aborde plusieurs des grands thèmes du cinéma autochtone canadien — colonisation, résistance, résurgence culturelle — et vise à rapprocher les Autochtones et les non-Autochtones d’ici. Les nouveaux films au cœur de cette tournée sont notamment On ne peut pas faire deux fois la même erreur, le plus récent documentaire de l’éminente cinéaste Alanis Obomsawin, qui s’intéresse cette fois à une poursuite judiciaire historique dénonçant le sous-financement systémique des services d’aide aux familles et à l’enfance offerts aux enfants des Premières Nations ; Inuk en colère, le long métrage maintes fois primé d’Alethea Arnaquq-Baril exposant les répercussions sur les communautés inuites des campagnes menées par les opposants à la chasse au phoque ; The Road Forward, le long métrage documentaire musical de Marie Clements sur le militantisme autochtone en Colombie-Britannique ; et Birth of a Family, dans lequel Tasha Hubbard nous convie à la première rencontre de trois sœurs et un frère séparés en bas âge et nous sensibilise aux conséquences des terribles rafles des années 1960. La série de projections présente aussi des films phares de notre collection de plus de 250 œuvres de réalisateurs autochtones.

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Since the last of Canada’s Indian residential schools closed in 1996, the nation has been attempting to shape a response to the legacy of abuse that the residential school system—which removed native children from their homes and families—inflicted on its Indigenous Peoples. Saskatoon Public Library (SPL), Saskatchewan, has become the first public library to incorporate a space permanently dedicated to truth and reconciliation. On November 21 SPL’s Frances Morrison Central Library opened the Read for Reconciliation reading area, which includes a full set of the reports compiled by the TRC over five years, plus a variety of books about Canada’s history of residential schools, as well as an extensive reading list on the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada on its homepage.
