Mayne Island Library - "Reel Injun" - Fri Nov 29

Mayne Island Library Presents "Reel Injun"

. The National Film Board of Canada film traces the evolution of cinema’s depiction of Native people from the silent film era to today, with clips from hundreds of classic and recent Hollywood movies, and candid interviews with celebrated Native and non-Native film celebrities, activists, film critics and historians.

Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond takes an entertaining and insightful look at the Hollywood Indian, exploring the portrayal of North American Natives through a century of cinema.

Travelling through the heartland of America, and into the Canadian North, Diamond looks at how the myth of “the Injun” has influenced the world’s understanding – and misunderstanding – of Natives.

7:30 Friday, November 29, at the Ag Hall.

Admission and popcorn by donation.
