Event Details

“Indian” mythology unwound into truth-telling, Inconvenient Indian proves you can never get too comfortable with the past. This urgent documentary by Michelle Latimer is an intellectual inquiry into Indigenous master storyteller Thomas King’s bestselling book The Inconvenient Indian. Return the gift of having come through the mechanisms of colonization, loss and injustice as an opportunity to reveal resilience, thrivance, love and hope. Shifting from subjectivity to mobilization of momentous change this feature anchors notions of Indigenous futurity in the voices of artists, filmmakers, activists and educators subverting the “inconvenience” of their existence into embodied practices of sovereignty and continuums.
