Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Venue: First Nations House
Address: 3rd Floor, 563 Spadina Ave
Cost: FREE**Stick around for a discussion about aboriginal identity following the screening.**

"Reel Injun" is an entertaining and insightful look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through the history of cinema. Travelling through the heartland of America, Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding—and misunderstanding—of Natives. With candid interviews with directors, writers, actors and activists and clips from hundreds of classic and recent films, Reel Injun traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today.

Cinema Politica UofT is an initiative of the University of Toronto Graduate Students' Union. We screen films that challenge conventional narratives and that explore underrepresented stories. Our film screenings aim to engage students and the community in critical issues surrounding equity and environmental justice. We seek to accomplish this by following each screening with a discussion about how the content of the film relates to our own experiences and what action we can take collectively.
