PANEL DISCUSSION: FROM THE SHADOWS OF THE VAULTS

SAT, FEB 6 / 3:30 pm
Panel Discussion with moderator Kevin Nikkel, City of Winnipeg Archivist and Records Manager Jody Baltesaan, Peter Geller, author of the book "Northern Exposures: Photographing and Filming the Canadian North 1920-1945", filmmaker Paula Kelly, director of Souvenirs and more.

Using the archival footage pieces, Adventures on the Bay as a spring board, this panel discussion will explore current issues facing filmmakers and historians. Moderator Kevin Nikkel and several panellists will discuss the use of archival footage and its meaning. Who ended up in front of the camera, and who is missing? What story was captured for posterity and what might have been left out? Can these disparities be rectified? How can archival collections find new audiences in age of new media?

Featuring a screening of rare archival footage:

Adventures on the Bay | 1934 | 16 min – This silent archival footage from the vaults of the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives dates back to the 1930s. It includes footage of Governor Cooper’s 1934 journey on the mighty Nascopie steam ship to the Hudson’s Bay Company outposts across the north, for fur trade meetings with aboriginal trappers. This special screening will be accompanied by an original ambient score by Nathan Reimer and Mark Penner of Moses Mayes.

Special thanks to the Hudson’s Bay Company and the Provincial Archives of Manitoba.
