18 June 2017 - 4.00pm

Nanabozhungis a feature-length documentary focusing on the lives of the Batchewana First Nations community living on the shores of Lake Superior in Ontario.

Nanabozhung looks at how this close community strive tosurvive culturally when they feel invisible in the place that used to be theirs. The film examines how they protect the land that they feel spiritually bound to and how they do so when their ability to protect it is so diminished.

Having been 'rounded up' onto reservations after the imposition of the Indian Act, how can these First Nations people continue to survive? This film highlights the importance of preserving indigenous culture when it puts the preservation of the environment above all else.

Directed by leading British actress Lia Williams(The Oresteia), the film is a UK production shot entirely in Canada with contributions from the First Nations community.

(UK / Canada 2016 - Dir: Lia Williams, English, 80 mins. Followed by director Q&A)


From 11th – 18th June, we are partnering with Origins: Festival of First Nations on an exciting programme of four films exploring the cutting edge of activism, environmentalism, and spiritual tradition seen from the perspective of indigenous cultures and filmmakers.
