We are not a Phase: Indigenous Screening Series + Talks | Online Event
Films programmed by Julie Rae Tucker.

In partnership with Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre | University of Windsor, St. Clair College Indigenous Student Services, VUCAVU and Arts Council Windsor & Region proudly present: We are not a Phase: Indigenous Screening Series + Talks. This is the fourth collaboration between ACWR and the Turtle Island Aboriginal Education Centre to engage and gather the University community and those outside to experience film and discussions reflecting on Indigeneity and to honour community initiatives that are Indigenous led. This year we are proud to welcome St. Clair College and VUCAVU as collaborators with support from the National Film Board of Canada.


We are not a Phase: Indigenous Screening Series + Talks are a series of four separate short programs that showcase a variety of film genres by primarily Indigenous Directors from across Turtle Island. The organizers assert that in this time what comes to mind is the connection to the land and the responsibility to the past and future generations. The films are grounded in the concerns of communities, pride, resiliency and memory. The discussion will involve community members with special guests who will be able to speak from their own perspective and worldview. The goal is to build relationships within the communities we occupy and to celebrate the artists who imagine a better future for their people.
