February 3 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5 – $10

Join Cinema Politica Concordia for First Voices – An Evening of Indigenous Cinema, in collaboration with First Voices Week Concordia. Working with the theme of WAKE UP!: Restorying the Land, we begin with shorts about land violation and protection, followed by THE FIFTH REGION, which considers the lives of urban Inuit who must contend with lives away from their ancestral lands.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with director Gabriel Nuraki Koperqualuk and protagonist Nancy Saunders (THE FIFTH REGION). The evening will be hosted by Inuk filmmaker and visual artist Stephen Agluvak Puskas.

This screening is part of First Voices Week Concordia. Admission is by donation ($5-10 suggested). All proceeds will be donated to the Unist’ot’en Camp. The venue is wheelchair accessible. Childcare provided on site by the Montreal Childcare Collective with 24 hour notice (https://childcarecollective.wordpress.com/about/ )
