series description

We have selected our subjects from a diverse range of filmmakers, writers, directors and performing artists who are pioneers of Indigenous cinema and television. Many of the artists featured in the series have focused at least part of their lives on the Aboriginal narrative and in the process are creating an impact on world screen culture. The Storytellers are from all parts of Canada and New Zealand. THEY ANSWER THE QUESTION: IS THERE AN INDIGENOUS VOICE IN MAINSTREAM CINEMA?
