#WatchingTogether in Spite of a Dying Planet

Presented in collaboration with Sky Fine Foods and Interaccess TO Vector Festival 2020, an online screening program featuring work from: Annette Mangaard, Amanda Amour-Lynx, Brianna Lowe, Patricia Dominguez, and Tru.E

#WatchingTogether in Spite of a Dying Planet presents an introspective journey through the melancholy of our damaged environment. Through diverse forms of performance, video, film and 3D animation, we are transported into new ecologies, provoking reconnection with nature and land-based knowledge. Situated in our device-mediated context the “natural physical” becomes yet another reality amongst the many we are shifting between. We invite participants to meet in digital presence, traversing the interconnections of online gatherings.

Virtual Documentary Screening: Cottagers and Indians

Canadian Friends Service Committee presents an evening of online learning and discussion on reconciliation. Join CFSC’s Jennifer Preston after the film for a discussion with the film’s director, Drew Hayden Taylor. July 22 at 7 pm.

Cottagers and Indians grew out of the play written by Drew Hayden Taylor, an award winning Ojibway writer. It follows the dispute that cottagers have with the seeding of wild rice on Pigeon Lake by a member of the Curve Lake First Nation. Watch as the film explores these issues and examples from other communities across Canada.
