  The REDress REdress Project

Tina Keeper

Canada, Social Activism/Artist Documentary, 201216 min, HD, ColorEnglish

 

In Manitoba, over the past 2 decades, 75 Aboriginal women have gone missing or have been murdered. This documentary contrasts the concepts implicit in the targeted violence towards Aboriginal women - that they are faceless/voiceless/lifeless - against the courage and tenacity of Aboriginal women who raise their voices against violence and systemic failings, as mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties and warriors. The film also profiles the art installation "The REDress Project," by Metis artist Jaime Black, which was an aesthetic response to the 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada, with the aim of drawing attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Aboriginal women.

  Buffalo Calling

Tasha Hubbard

Canada, History/Experimental Animation, 201312 min, HD, ColorNo dialogue

 

Buffalo Calling follows the journey of four buffalo calves, orphaned by the horrific buffalo slaughter in the northern plains grasslands. The buffalo calves and their descendants are brought over the Rocky Mountains in the 1870s to a temporary refuge in the plateau region of the Rockies, assisted by the Salish and Kootenai tribe. After the Dawes Act of 1905, they lose their refugee status and are herded into early 20th century railway cars, to be shipped to the northern parklands of Alberta. But the land in which the calves were born and the spirit of the buffalo continue to call for their return. And after 100 years, the buffalo finally come back to the land of their ancestors. BUFFALO CALLING screened as part of imagineNATIVE in 2013.

  Derby & Groma

Kara Blake

Canada, Biographical Documentary/Artist, 201317 min, Super 16mm, Color/Black & WhiteSpanish with English subtitles

 

While taking a stroll in Buenos Aires, photo collector Pablo Cruz Aguirre came across an unusual gift.  Blowing down the street was a collection of letters, postcards and photos depicting a performing duo named Derby and Groma. Desolina Merlino, alias Derby, was born 1891 of Italian descent. Samuel Salomón Gromatzky, alias Groma, was the son of Jewish immigrants in Argentina, born in 1895.  The two performed acrobatic dance routines in theaters throughout Europe and Latin America in the late 1920’s.  With the assistance of historians and collectors, the film paints a picture of Argentina’s cultural life in the early 20th century, a world from which few traces still exist. After premiering at Hot Docs in 2013, the film has continued to gain recognition at festivals like DOC NYC and the International Festival of Films on Art.

The "Gift"

Terril Calder

Canada, Animation, 20112 min, HD, ColorEnglish

The "Gift" interrogates why the European settlers gave the native people blankets with diseases on them, and if they did it on purpose. This issue has been resurrected for debate in an attempt to discredit the use of smallpox blankets as a myth. The history of quite a few tribes was lost during this time because so many people fell sick and died. As a result, the woolen blanket represents all of the broken promises that are interwoven in native history. Using a very minimalist style, this animated short leaves a lasting impression. The "Gift" had its world premiere at imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.
