Gimme Some Truth: Opening Night Special Presentation: Freedom Road: 5 Short Films From Shoal Lake 40

Tue, Nov 5 / 7 pm
Winnipeg Art Gallery
Free Admission
Directed by Angelina McLeod
2019, Canada, 75 min, World premiere

Freedom Road is a National Film Board of Canada five-film series presenting powerful accounts of lived history from band members of Shoal Lake 40 Anishinaabe First Nation – where Winnipeg gets its water. That the world premiere screening of this unique, community-led project is happening at “the other end of the pipe” is rich terrain for considering our collective relationship to water, and to each other.

A post-screening panel with band members Daryl Redsky, Roxanne Greene, director Angelina McLeod and Winnipeg-based historian Adele Perry, will highlight the complex, ongoing work of Shoal Lake 40 in resolving a brutal colonial legacy – one that is inseparable from the history of this place.

Presented in partnership with National Film Board of Canada, The Decolonizing Lens, The Winnipeg Art Gallery and Friends of Shoal Lake 40.
