OAC Film Night: Reel Injun

Join us for a public screening of multi-award winning film Reel Injun. 
Entry and snacks by donation.
All ages encouraged.

About the Film

"Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes a look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema. Traveling through the heartland of America, and into the Canadian North, Diamond looks at how the myth of "the Injun" has influenced the world's understanding — and misunderstanding — of Natives.

Reel Injun traces the evolution of cinema's depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native film celebrities, activists, film critics, and historians.
The Filmmaker

Neil Diamond
One of Canada's foremost Aboriginal filmmakers and photographers, Neil Diamond hails from the Cree community of Waskaganish. His recent credits include The Last Explorer, a feature-length docudrama retracing the steps of his great uncle, Aboriginal guide George Elson, on an ill-fated voyage into the heart of uncharted Labrador."

The Handlebars, assuming alter egos as....
The Famous Monsters
Once a year famous monsters rises from the dead to play misfits covers then returns to the depths from whence they came.
https://www.facebook.com/TheHandlebarsBand/

Red7
Hard Rock influenced by the Seattle sound of the '90's with punk and metal undertones.
https://www.facebook.com/RED7PG/

Mediocre Minds
Self-described as "Hurricane Katrina to your face-ears", Mediocre Minds has been compared (not favorably) to the likes of Aristotle, the moon landing, and the invention of electricity. Dredged from the shallowest end of the talent-pool, MM is the brainchild of four (very) part-time "musicians" who feel the need to sonically accost their unwitting audiences with poorly rehearsed songs, a complete lack of stage presence, and poo jokes.
https://www.facebook.com/MediocreMinds/

The Days After
Four spiritedly young men with a taste for ska and a mission from punk. Watch in awe as they pick it up and put it down with soul.

Prayer Wind, a FREE performance piece by José Delgado-Guevara

Prayer Wind, a FREE performance piece by José Delgado-Guevara

Prayer Wind, a performance piece by José Delgado-Guevara

For 3 piano backs, viola and singing audience.

3 percussionists, with various kinds of mallets
1 violist
Audience or part of an audience that is willing to sing
Volunteered Morse-coded prayers 


As an earnest hope or wish, prayers carry intention. Though our words, loudly spoken or mentally whispered, may be taken away by the wind, it seems to me that an intention stays with us. 

I believe we are responsible for this intention. 

Prayer Wind is a performance piece that will combine the sounds of a viola, piano-backs, and singing.

Please share with me a word, a wish, or a whole prayer in Morse code; we will translate your code to rhythms to be played upon the piano backs. Feel free to email me your Morse coded words, or you can bring them in the day of the performance.

This performance is free of charge

Cinema Night Film & Discussion featuring "The Road Forward"

Cinema Night Film & Discussion featuring "The Road Forward"

The Road Forward, a musical documentary by Marie Clements, connects a pivotal moment in Canada’s civil rights history—the beginnings of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s—with the powerful momentum of First Nations activism today.

Clements paints an electrifying picture of how a tiny movement, the Native Brotherhood and Native Sisterhood, became a powerful voice for social, political and legal advocacy, eventually effecting profound change at the national level. The Road Forward’s stunningly shot musical sequences, performed by an ensemble of some of Canada’s finest vocalists and musicians, seamlessly connect past and present with soaring vocals, blues, rock, and traditional beats.

The Road Forward is a rousing tribute to the fighters for First Nations rights, a soul-resounding historical experience, and a visceral call to action.
