Screening Memory Film Series + Debate

“The Centre for Memory and Testimony Studies proposes through the Screening Memory Film Series to discuss and explore the various cinematic memory-scapes, which screen as much as reveal our modes of recollection. Five screenings every Friday of March will present several aspects of memory in cinema to be debated by specialists and the public. Free admission.

The March 3 screening is of:

No Home Movie (BEL/FRA, 2015, 115 min.) by Chantal Akerman Discussant: Marta Marín-Dòmine, Director CMTS, Wilfrid Laurier University Chantal Akerman’s final film is a portrait of her relationship with her mother Natalia, a Holocaust survivor and familiar presence in many of her daughter’s films. For two hours, we will see them eating, chatting and sharing memories. Also, and to show how small the world has become, Chantal remains in contact with her mother at other times of the year via Skype from lands as far away as Belgium, Oklahoma and New York. Akerman, who has died aged 65, apparently after taking her own life, worked extensively, making fiction, documentary, experimental and essay films. She also made video and installation art. The marginal position she sometimes occupied in the film world had much to do with her eclectic practice, which made it hard to assign her a neat “auteur” identity. Nevertheless, from early in her career, Akerman attained a somewhat legendary status among cinephiles as a cinematic radical, a formal innovator and a pioneer of modern feminist cinema. (Romney)”

“Cinema Politica and the Aboriginal Education Council are proud to co-present the screening of “Colonization Road” by Michelle St. John. This event is free and open to everyone. “Colonization Road” unearths the history of the Public Lands Act of 1853 — its impact on First Nations, treaties, land and the expansion of “Canadian” settlement. Anishinaabe comedian and activist Ryan McMahon follows a few roads, one in his own home town of Fort Frances, Ont., where the main drag is still called Colonization Road. Ryan meets up with a number of people along the way, exploring the state of relationships, settlers in solidarity and what it means to “decolonize.” Director Michelle St. John will be in attendance, along with Pamela D. Palmater and Professor Jeff Denis. As well, we’ll have a special performance by spoken word artist Lena Recollet. The event is wheelchair accessible and will have ASL interpretation.” For more information on the film: www.cinemapolitica.org/film/colonization-road.
