Celebrating National Indigenous Peoples Month.

Lana Gets Her Talk (Directed by Beth Wishart MacKenzie, 37m, 2017)
Lana Gets Her Talk is an observation of Cree artist Lana Whiskeyjack as she works to complete a mixed- media sculpture of a tortured face, the face of her uncle. Lana calls the piece Losing My Talk. This brief study of an artist and her work helps us come to some understanding of the trauma experienced by Canada’s Indigenous people in the Indian Residential School system, of its enduring effects on the children of Survivors, and of one woman’s journey to recover what was lost: dignity, identity, and voice. A story of resilience, Lana’s journey speaks of the power of Indigenous “ways of being” in our time.
