This studio/seminar course introduces students to a wide range of Indigenous film and video produced in Canada and around the world. Through lectures and screenings students explore how Indigenous filmmakers engage with strategies of colonization/decolonization, cultural revitalization, and storytelling. Topics include visual culture, representation, sovereignty, human rights, land rights, language, spirituality, sexuality, and gender. During the course students will work on a project, which could be a project proposal, short video, treatment, storyboard, or visual artwork in a medium of their choice.
