    Three Thousand
    My father was born in a spring igloo—half snow, half skin. I was born in a hospital, with jaundice and two teeth. Inuit artist Asinnajaq plunges us into a sublime imaginary universe—14 minutes of luminescent, archive-inspired cinema that recast the present, past and future of her people in a radiant new light. Diving into the NFB’s vast archive, she parses the complicated cinematic representation of the Inuit, harvesting fleeting truths and fortuitous accidents from a range of sources—newsreels, propaganda, ethnographic docs, and work by Indigenous filmmakers. Embedding historic footage into original animation, she conjures up a vision of hope and beautiful possibility.

    Mohawk Girls
    With insight, humour and compassion Mohawk Girls takes us inside the lives of three teenagers as they tackle the issues of identity, culture and family. They are outspoken, honest and wise beyond their years. Deeply emotional yet unsentimental, Mohawk Girlsreveals the hope, despair, heartache and promise of growing up Indigenous at the beginning of the 21st century.
