This Is Not A Ceremony

This Is Not A Ceremony by Ahnahktsipiitaa
September 1 - October 31  |  Main Branch (Computer Services)

In this 21-minute, cinematic VR experience, Niitsitapi writer and director Ahnahktsipiitaa (Colin Van Loon) takes us beyond the veil of traditional media and transports us directly into another realm, where past, present and future are one; where colonial rules and assumptions are forgotten; and where we can finally get to the truth of the matter. Panoramas flow and merge, stories come to life and dance before our eyes, and community protocols confront our notions of personal responsibility. Here, we are asked to witness some of the darker sides of living life in Canada while Indigenous. In English and Blackfoot with English subtitles.
(Description from NFB.)
