Contemporary indigenous filmmakers, visual artists, and curators, Sky Hopinka (Ho-Chunk/Pechanga), Adam Khalil (Ojibwe), and Zack Khalil (Ojibwe) will engage in conversation with each other and with the audience to explore the questions of indigenous cinema as anti-ethnographic practice, of formal innovation in indigenous cinema, and the future of indigenous cinema and art in the context of indigenous self-determination. Authors of experimental films played at Sundance, Toronto International, New York, and Ann Arbor film festivals and visual works exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Modern, Walker Art Center, the Whitney and Toronto Biennials, Hopinka and the Khalils have also curated film programs for prestigious venues, including the upcoming 2019 Whitney Biennial in NYC. They will discuss their own films as well as works by other contemporary indigenous filmmakers.
Sky Hopinka’s films will be screened at the University of Richmond International Film Series on Thursday, November 22, 2019, at 7:30pm in Jepson Hall (Room 118) and at the Pocahontas Reframed Storytellers Film Festival on Sunday, November 24, at 1:30pm (Byrd Theater).
