SHORTS FROM THE NORTH

SUN, FEB 7 / 7 pm

MAN OF THE NORTHWEST
Dir. Matt Holm | 2007 | Canada | 12 min.
An ironic re-working of oddball American depictions of Canada laced with the pop culture kitsch of Dudley Do-Right, the clownish machismo of Robert Goulet and the Gonzo Canadiana to be found in early Hollywood adventure romances like Nomads of the North (1920) and The 49th Parallel (1942).

THE CHRONICLER
Dir. Ruth deGraves | 2009 | Canada | 14 min.
Fred Ford inherited a family legacy and a Canadian legacy. His grandfather was a fur trader and photographed the Caribou Inuit in the early 1900s and their first contact with European culture. Fred’s mission is to share this story and continue to chronicle the world in the tradition of his forefathers. Fred is not only a self-confessed photographer but is in possession of the rarest photo archive of a time in Canadian history that changed the landscape of the northern culture. Fred’s family history is rich in images of the Canadian North, the Inuit, their art, the European settlers and their impact.

ADVENTURES ON THE BAY
Archival Footage | 1934 | Canada | 16 min
This silent archival footage from the vaults of the Hudson’s Bay Company Archives dates back to the 1930s.

THE OTHER SIDE OF THE LEDGER: AN INDIAN VIEW OF THE HUDSON’S BAY COMPANY Dir. Willie Dunn, Martin Defalco | 1972 | Canada | 42 min
The Hudson’s Bay Company’s 300th Anniversary celebration was no occasion for joy among the people whose lives were tied to the trading stores. This film, narrated by George Manuel, president of the National Indian Brotherhood, presents the view of spokespersons for Canadian Aboriginal groups. There is a sharp contrast between the official celebrations, with Queen Elizabeth II among the guests, and what Aboriginal peoples have to say about their lot in the Company’s operations.
