Community Screening: The Decolonizing Lens Presents Assini and Reel Injun

Mon, Sep 12 / 7 pm
Free Admission
Q&A with filmmakers Gail Maurice and Neil Diamond to follow screening

ASSINI (Gail Maurice)
Assini is a rambunctious 7-year-old girl who doesn’t realize she’s an Indian. This is her story of self-discovery and self-acceptance. It’s a tale that follows the conflicts and inner battles of learning to like and accept who you are.

REEL INJUN (Neil Diamond)
Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes an entertaining and insightful look at the portrayal of North American Indigenous people throughout a century of cinema. Featuring hundreds of clips from old classics as well as recent releases, the film traces the evolution of the “Hollywood Indian.” Diamond guides the audience on a journey across America to some of cinema’s most iconic landscapes and conducts candid interviews with celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson and Jim Jarmusch. The film is a loving look at cinema through the eyes of the people who appeared in its very first flickering images and have survived to tell their stories in their own way.

THE DECOLONIZING LENS
A monthly series that features the work and words of Indigenous filmmakers from Winnipeg and beyond, The Decolonizing Lens is supported by the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation and the Women’s and Gender Studies program at the University of Manitoba. All screenings are free and open to everyone.
