Event Description

A large diversity of ethnic groups existed when Europeans arrived in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and other countries. Their arrival was part of a plan of conquering lands, accumulating riches, and subjugating peoples. The impact of this terrible project still resonates today. ADIFF-NY 2020 is paying attention to the history and legacy of these events with a selection of 10 films from the USA, Canada, Ecuador, Mexico, New Zealand and Australia that illustrate the impact of colonization and the struggles that followed for indigenous peoples. The program also includes a virtual conversation about the history and fights of First Nation People with filmmakers, activists, and scholars.Films in this progam: Atanarjuat: The Fast RunnerConscience PointIn Times Of RainKuessipanSpears From All SidesSweet CountryRosa ChumbeThe TrackerWarrior WomenWhite LiesPANEL DISCUSSIONSFIRST NATION PROGRAM PANEL – THURSDAY DEC. 3 @ 7PM ESTDr. Elizabeth “Beth” Castle, co-director WARRIOR WOMENMyriam Verreault, dir.
