Several films from WFG Distribution will be screened as part of this year’s Asinabka Film & Media Arts Festival, which celebrates Indigenous arts in Algonquin territory.
The festival takes place from August 9 to 13 this year in the nation’s capital, Ottawa, which is on the unsurrendered land of the Algonquins of the Ottawa River Valley. Asinabka showcases works by and about Indigenous peoples, cultures, and topics.
SWEAT, Kristin Snowbird’s documentary about the sweat lodge ceremony, is included in the Ma Connexion: Short Docs program, alongside a film by JJ Neepin. Two films by Amanda Strong, How to Steal a Canoe and Four Faces of the Moon, are part of the Lost Love: Animated Shorts program and Adam Bentley’s Hila, in which Inuit musician Tiffany Ayalik dances to throat singing in snowshoes, kicks off the End of the World: Experimental Shorts program.
