Discussion and screening - L'animation autochtone au Québec/Indigenous Animation in Quebec
The first part of this bilingual event is a ninety-minute roundtable that provides a panorama of Indigenous animation practices in Quebec by bringing together established and emerging artists: Raymond Caplin, Konwennénhon Marion Delaronde, Diane Obomsawin, and Alisi Telengut. Innu filmmaker, cultural activist, and founder of Montreal’s First Peoples Festival André Dudemaine will moderate the roundtable.
The second part is a one-hour screening that zooms in on the cultural politics of one of the most vibrant sectors of contemporary Indigenous media art production today. The animated shorts to be screened include Christmas at Moose Factory (1971) by pioneer filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin, Diane Obomsawin’s Walk-in-the-Forest (2009), In Your Heart (2012) by animator Raymond Caplin, Konwennénhon Marion Delaronde’s Skátne Ronatehiaróntie:
They Grow Together (2012), and Nutag-Homeland (2016) by Montreal-based Alisi Telengut.
This event celebrates animation as an artistic practice that honours Indigenous
heritages while fostering their resurgence in the present and into the future.
