Performance Notes

× The story of seven Indigenous artists who look to the past for the strength to overcome a legacy of hurt, becoming cultural giants and leaders in the process. This illuminating and beautifully shot documentary follows its subjects as they prepare for the annual Adäka Cultural Festival in Whitehorse, Yukon. The process is familiar: rehearsals, training and crafting, but the backdrop of distant northern communities and the intimate access serve up both difficult lessons and inspiration. Journeys to Adäka paints a moving portrait of self-empowered Indigenous communities at an inflection point in our history. Produced in association with the Yukon First Nations Culture and Tourism Association. 60 minutes Director Fritz Mueller, producer Teresa Earle and special guests in attendance.

Screens with: Mountain of S’Gaana, an NFB-produced animated film that spins a magical tale of a young man who is stolen away to the spirit world and the young woman who rescues him. Directed by illustrator and animator, Chris Auchter and based on a Haida legend. 10 minutes Composer, Daniel Janke and producer, Shirley Vercruysse (NFB) in attendance
