A night of screening several short films and a feature length film that explore indigenous resistance in the global context. Through the medium of documentary, video art and film, these featured films exhibit acts of resistance which interrupt a narrow definition of the term, offering insights into new strategies of resistance to contemporary marginalizations, colonizations, demonizations, and misrepresentations. They also expose the current moment of occupation on indigenous lands and the variety of methods used by indigenous peoples to oppose continued military, socio-economic, political and cultural oppressions.
The films will be introduced by the evening’s curators, Dana Olwan and Carla Taunton.
Films to be screened:
Alanis Obomsawin’s “Kanehsatake 270 Years of Resistance” (1993)
Jayce Salloum and Elia Suleiman’s “Introduction to the End of An Argument” (1990)
Jacqueline Salloum, “Planet of the Arabs” (2005)
Dana Claxton’s “Buffalo Bone China” (1997)
