My 1st film event in 2019! Pleased to announce “Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way” will screen in Saskatoon, Canada, at one of Wanuskewin Heritage Park series of events, in January. My film will be part of the “Power Lines: A Symposium on the Impact of the Woodland School of Art and the Work of Norval Morrisseau, who is called the grandfather of native art in Canada, and was Anishinaabe.”
Most specifically, the film will be part of the discussion: “If I was you, I would appropriate you too” Ruth Cuthand, Carmen Robertson, David Garneau. Artists and art historians will respond to the issue of appropriation and how and if it effects Indigenous artists. Some discussion will also be on the utilization of Indigenous artistic genres by non-Indigenous artists and the art market.
Keynote will be presented by Dr.Carmen Robertson, and other performers and presentations include Indigenous Poets Society, The Indian Group of Seven, and Madison Noon. The film screening will take place at PAVED Arts, 424 20th Street West Saskatoon. https://www.pavedarts.ca/
