The Embargo Collective II

rmbargo-1

In conjunction with the imagineNATIVE Festival and Urban Shaman Gallery, Cinematheque presents The Embargo Collective II – an anthology of five short films by Canadian Indigenous women. Participating in a collective process, each director created a film under restrictions imposed on them by their peers in order to push them into new creative territory.

Roberta / Directed by Caroline Monnet, 2015, Canada, 9 min, French with English subtitles / Housewife and grandmother Roberta struggles to fit into the conformist society she lives in and turns to amphetamines and booze to cure her boredom.

Skyworld / Directed by Zoe Leigh Hopkins, 2015, Canada, 18 min, English and Mohawk with English subtitles / A broken-hearted woman moves home to rebuild her life and give her young son roots through language and family.

Bihttoš / Directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, 2015, Canada, 14 min, English and Sami with English subtitles / An unconventional documentary that explores the complex relationship between a father and daughter. Using animation, re-enactments, and archival photos, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers delves into the dissolution of her parents’ mythic love story and how it coloured her perception of love in her adult life.

Intemperance / Directed by Lisa Jackson, 2015, Canada, 10 min / In 1850, George Copway was the first Indian to publish a history of his nation, the Ojibway. Intemperance is a satire that brings to life a morally complex story of his people living in changing times.

Aviliaq (Entwined) / Directed by Alethea Arnaquq-Baril, 2015, Canada, 15 min, Inukitut with English subtitles / Set in a 1950’s Inuit community, Aviliaq tells the story of two Inuit lesbians struggling to stay together in a new world run by outsiders.
