The Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Decolonizing Lens are proud to present a virtual screening of 4 films (75min total) from Turtle Island, Aotearoa, and Australia to accompany the Naadohbii: To Draw Water Symposium.
Following the screening, filmmakers Victoria Anderson-Gardner (Mni Wiconi: Mitakuyelo), Keelan Walker (The Pakohe Trails), Kath Akuhata-Brown (Washday), and, tentatively, Jason De Santolo (Warburdar Bununu: Water Shield), will discuss the themes within their works (45min).
Our world is profoundly linked to water in all forms for human and ecological survival. Water is sacred. Water is life.
The Water Symposium is part of the inaugural Winnipeg Indigenous Triennial, Naadohbii: To Draw Water, presented by BMO Financial Group. The symposium will take place virtually with Indigenous voices from Turtle Island, Aotearoa, and Australia discussing environmental, political and cultural traditions and interconnected relationships to water.
