“Indigenous women around the world are contributing to a new cinematic wave. In Canada, some of the most celebrated documentaries in recent years have been directed by First Nations, Métis, and Inuit women. This panel will highlight the importance, cultural impact, and vibrancy of documentary storytelling by Indigenous women. Please join us in celebrating our panelists’ work while gaining insight into their creative process.”
