Stories From The North: An Outdoor Snow-Screening

Stories From The North: An Outdoor Snow-Screening

Experience films by Indigenous filmmakers from northern cultures projected in a theater made of snow, as well as audio and video projections by local artists and Indigenous youth from Ottawa's A7G - Assembly of Seven Generations (A7G).

Storytelling has the power to connect the past with the present, teach lessons, impart values, heal, and to explain the world and connect us to the universe through language and mythology. The stories in this film program come from the Inuit, Sami, and other northern Indigenous cultures that have thrived in the arctic regions of the world for thousands of years, sharing stories inside the Sami lavvu or Inuit tupiq, enduring the changing seasons of dark and light, of colonialism, of climate change. Although these cultures may live thousands of kilometres away from each other, they share a common history of resilience in their language, culture and the magic of storytelling.
