Film Night: The Decolonizing Lens
Begins: Tuesday November 5, 2019
Gimme Some Truth Documentary Festival
Opening Night Special Presentation: Freedom Road
Freedom Road is a National Film Board of Canada five-film series presenting powerful accounts of lived history from band members of Shoal Lake 40 Anishinaabe First Nation – where Winnipeg gets its water. The world premiere screening of this unique, community-led project is happening at “the other end of the pipe” is rich terrain for considering our collective relationship to water, and to each other.
A post-screening panel with band members Daryl Redsky, Roxanne Greene, director Angelina McLeod and Winnipeg-based historian Adele Perry, will highlight the complex, ongoing work of Shoal Lake 40 in resolving a brutal colonial legacy – one that is inseparable from the history of this place.
