Everyone’s Child: New Aboriginal Shorts

Thu, May 26 / 7 pm
Introduced by Jason Ryle

Curated by Jason Ryle, Daniel Northway-Frank and Michelle Latimer from the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.

Jason Ryle is the Executive Director at the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival. As an award-winning writer, Jason has written for the Smithsonian Institution and numerous publications throughout North America. He made his first short film in 2005 and has been programming alongside imagineNATIVE’s Programming Team since 2002.

Urban Shaman, imagineNATIVE, and Cinematheque present a unique curatorial program Everyone’s Child in conjunction with Urban Shaman’s 20th Anniversary. By exploring the individual’s journey towards self-realization, these films speak to the hopes, dreams and profound ties that bind generations. Traditional values are reflected through contemporary storytelling to celebrate a distinctive and courageous strength inherent
in the process of discovery and acceptance.
