|Canadian Aboriginal Film Festival is Feb. 18-26|
The Department of Indian Studies, in collaboration with the government of Canada, will present a film festival of Canadian Aboriginal films Feb. 18-26. We are fortunate to be able to present 13 films of various lengths by Canadian Aboriginal filmmakers. This event is made possible by the Canadian Consulate in Minneapolis. All films will be shown at the Memorial Union Lecture Bowl and will be followed by discussions.
We encourage you to see the schedule of films, as well as descriptions, on our Web site at http://www.und.edu/dept/indian/fn%20films.htm
and we also encourage instructors teaching classes that deal with these subjects to have their students attend.
The subjects of these films range from the history of interactions with the Canadian government to women in the arts, from the foster home system and family issues to humor. These films are an excellent introduction to contemporary Canadian society and the situation of aboriginal peoples in Canada.
In a semester when the campus will not experience a Time Out Week, this film series builds on the Indian Studies Association film series in the fall to bring more information about indigenous peoples in North America to the community.
