Kanatenhs – When The Pine Needles Fall
Sunday, August 13 - 4 pm
Cinéma du Musée
Director: Ellen Gabriel,
The ancestral territory is a place of memory. The women who took part in the Mohawk resistance in 1990 are once again speaking out to reaffirm their attachment to the pine forest and the cemetery there. And their voices have lost none of their relevance 33 years later. Artist and Mohawk activist from Kanehsatà:ke, Ellen Gabriel recalls the central role, too often overlooked, of women in the struggle to preserve the territory.
With the filmmaker and protagonists in attendance.
