Screening: Forget Winnetou! Loving in the Wrong Way
A Documentary Film by D.S. Red Haircrow – Presented by Wanuskewin Galleries
Friday, January 18, 8pm
Upstairs at PAVED Arts
424 20th Street West Saskatoon
A documentary film project directed by Red Haircrow on Native stereotypes and their connection to racism, colonialism, and deep societal issues.
“Most films about Natives concentrate on European narratives or indigenous experience in North America but there are Natives abroad and being “loved in the wrong way” in “Indian crazy” Germany has many forms. Germany is a microcosm of struggles taking place across the world both against and for decolonization; for correcting white privilege and supremacy that’s divided and helped destroy our world. We explore the roots of racism, colonialism, and appropriation in Germany from a rarely considered perspective: the Native American stereotype they infamously adore.” – https://forgetwinnetou.com
