Safe at Home: Brown Town Muddy Water w/ Heart

Free to view: February 1 - 14
Directed by Jesse Green
2015, Canada, 52 min

Join us for a live Q&A with director Jesse Green, moderated by David McLeod of NCI FM, on Friday, February 5 at 4:30pm!

Brown Town Muddy Water honours the ancient relationship between Indigenous people and the meeting place known as The Forks. This television special chronicles musicians who shaped Winnipeg’s main street in the 1960’s like the late Percy Tuesday, Errol Ranville and Billy Joe Green. For the emerging urban Aboriginal community, echoes of home sounded through music, dance, story and gatherings. Peoples lived experiences of emergence, segregation, racism, camaraderie and resistance are as resilient as the downtown streets of Winnipeg. The professional musicians that grew up on this notorious strip paved the road to success for forthcoming generations of Indigenous artists. Join us as local music and memory reverberate throughout the decades!

Plays with:

Heart / Directed by Sam Karney, 2015, Canada, 2:42 min / A filmmaker and poet journey to Winnipeg’s North End, one of the most economically depressed and violent neighbourhoods in Canada, only to find some of the most wonderful and warm people, dispelling many of their preconceptions of the people who call the place home.
