Indigenous Programming at FIFA 2023
Beaded, totemic and performance art
The First Peoples’ Festival is proud to co-present film screenings dedicated to the artistic expression of First Peoples that have been programmed as part of the upcoming Festival des films sur l’art.
Not to be missed, a carte blanche with the directors of UHU-labos nomades, a multimedia creation company active with Aboriginal communities, on March 25, at Concordia University’s J.A. de Sève Hall.
The selection of short films includes Gyaangee: Beyond Being Silenced, a short Canadian documentary by Charles Wilkinson about Haida artist Robert Davidson, which will have its Canadian premiere; XAR – Sueño de Obsidiana by Edgar Calel and Fernando Pereira dos Santos, about a ritual performed in Brazil by a Mayan Kqchikel artist from Guatemala in the famous building (signed Niemeyer! ) of the Sao Paulo Biennial; and Craig Commanda’s Mokadjige, a meditative essay on beading.
