Duration : 1h 32
 

Presented in original multilingual version with French subtitles.

Painter, writer, lover, playwright, traveller, and freethinker, Oskar Kokoschka is a rare being, remaining young, lucid and passionate throughout the many ordeals he experienced during his long life. Both classic and modern, his pictorial works of art remains avant-garde, and his topicality relates to us and warns us in a most ardent way: his high moral standards which are cruelly lacking in our times are an example that should be more widely known. The intimate life of Kokoschka mingles with the artistic and social life of that of a committed citizen. Added to his tireless life is the unremitting activity of the painter – thinker, each painting is a declaration of liberty and hope, a message of painful beauty and fraternity, a celebration of life.

Presented in original multilingual version with French subtitles.

Filmed in Yiddish, M is a journey to the heart of Bnei Brak, world capital of the Haredim, the ultra-Orthodox Jews, “God-fearing” in Hebrew. This is where Menahem Lang grew up. He was known for his kindness, his commitment to Talmud school and especially his golden voice, which made him a renowned performer of liturgical chants. At the age of twenty, however, he broke with this pious life and moves to Tel Aviv, for the child with the bright smile was hiding a secret: for years, he was raped by members of the community that worshipped him. Menahem succeeds in opening the door to this forbidden world. This return to the scene of the crime is also a return to the places he loved, a path of initiation sprinkled with incredible encounters, recovered rituals, a reconciliation. As though drawn towards a magnet, those who experienced the same ordeal as him reveal themselves and dare to speak, driving away the haunting of the “galgal”, the vicious circle that has transformed victims of rape into rapists since the dawn of time.

Presented in original multilingual version with English subtitles.

In August 2013, an ancient statue of Apollo was found in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Gaza. A few days later, the treasure disappeared. As filmmaker Nicolas Wadimoff combs the streets of Gaza and Jerusalem, he and his attentive camera take on a detective’s role. Examining faces and recording contradictory accounts, the investigation reveals not only each person’s ambitions and beliefs, but the complexities of a delicate region whose tensions seem to be laid bare by the archaeological incident. Whether it’s a hoax or a national treasure, the Apollo of Gaza gives the filmmaker a starting point for a fascinating meditation on the importance of cultural heritage and its role in a nation’s affirmation – or its negation.

Duration : 1h 37
 

Presented in original multilingual version with English subtitles.

In the summer of 1973, a young international crew of six women and five men embarked together on a most unusual sea voyage—a close-quarters trip across the Atlantic from Spain to Mexico on a free-floating raft christened the Acali, initiated by Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genovés, who proposed to use the group as guinea pigs in his investigation of the origins (and erotics) of violent conflict. Contentious from the get-go, incorrectly labeled by the media as the ‘Sex Raft,’ the Acali mission stayed afloat for 101 days—and now, more than forty years later, the only surviving crew members reunite to reenact and recollect their experience, additionally illustrated with extensive 16mm archival footage from on-board. What results is a document of the thin line between science and cultism in the early ‘70s, a touching story of female camaraderie and, in the person of Genovés, an unforgettable portrait of oblivious, tyrannical toxic masculinity.

ALANIS OBOMSAWIN, PRINTMAKER                                AN ARTIST AND HER NATION

SPOTLIGHT ON ALANIS OBOMSAWIN’S FILM WORKS
In connection with the exhibition Alanis Obomsawin, Printmaker, the Waban-Aki filmmaker is presenting six award-winning works that she produced at the NFB.

10.30 a.m. – OVFST
Our People Will Be Healed, 2017, 97 min

Our People Will Be Healed, Alanis Obomsawin’s 50th film, reveals how a Cree community in Manitoba has been enriched through the power of education. The Helen Betty Osborne Ininiw Education Resource Centre in Norway House, north of Winnipeg, receives a level of funding that few other Indigenous institutions enjoy. Its teachers help their students to develop their abilities and their sense of pride. In addition to teaching academic subjects, the school reconnects students with their ancestral culture.
The fifth film in a cycle that began with The People of the Kattawapiskak River, Our People Will Be Healed adopts an optimistic tone without denying a dark past. It bears witness to the tragedies that have befallen the Plains Cree, such as being confined to reserves, forbidden to practise any cultural ceremonies, including the Sun Dance, and sent off to residential schools. But first and foremost, the film conveys a message of hope: that in an appropriate school environment, one that incorporates their people’s history, language and culture, Indigenous youth can realize their dreams.

12.30 p.m. – OVFST
Christmas at Moose Factory, 1971, 13 min

Released in 1971, this lyrical short documentary marked the directorial debut of legendary Waban-Aki director Alanis Obomsawin. Filmed at a residential school in northern Ontario, it is composed entirely of drawings by young Cree children and stories told by the children themselves. Listening has been at the core of Obomsawin’s practice since the very beginning. “Documentary film,” she said in a 2017 interview, “is the one place that our people can speak for themselves. I feel that the documentaries that I’ve been working on have been very valuable for the people, for our people to look at ourselves… and through that be able to make changes that really count for the future of our children to come.”

Incident at Restigouche, 1984, 45 min
On June 11 and 20, 1981, the Quebec Provincial Police (QPP) raided Restigouche Reserve, Quebec. At issue were the salmon-fishing rights of the Mi’kmaq. Because salmon has traditionally been a source of food and income for the Mi’kmaq, the Quebec government’s decision to restrict fishing aroused consternation and anger. Released in 1984, this groundbreaking and impassioned account of the police raids brought Alanis Obomsawin to international attention. The film features a remarkable on-camera exchange between Obomsawin herself and provincial Minister of Fisheries Lucien Lessard, the man who’d ordered the raid. Decades later, Jeff Barnaby, director of Rhymes for Young Ghouls, cited the film as an inspiration. “That documentary encapsulated the idea of films being a form of social protest for me… It started right there with that film.”

Kanehsatake: 270 Years of Resistance, 1993, 119 min
In July 1990, a dispute over a proposed golf course to be built on Kanien’kéhaka (Mohawk) lands in Oka, Quebec, set the stage for a historic confrontation that would grab international headlines and sear itself into the Canadian consciousness. Director Alanis Obomsawin – at times with a small crew, at times alone – spent 78 days behind Kanien’kéhaka lines filming the armed standoff between protestors, the Quebec police and the Canadian army. Released in 1993, this landmark documentary has been seen around the world, winning over a dozen international awards and making history at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it became the first documentary ever to win the Best Canadian Feature award. Jesse Wente, Director of Canada’s Indigenous Screen Office, has called it a “watershed film in the history of First Peoples cinema.”

This feature documentary profiles Indigenous leaders in their quest for justice as they seek to establish dialogue with the Canadian government. By tracing the history of their ancestors since the signing of Treaty No. 9, these leaders aim to raise awareness about issues vital to First Nations in Canada: respect for and protection of their lands and their natural resources, and the right to hunt and fish so that their societies can prosper.

SPOTLIGHT ON ALANIS OBOMSAWIN’S FILM WORKS
In connection with the exhibition Alanis Obomsawin, Printmaker, the Waban-Aki filmmaker is presenting six award-winning works that she produced at the NFB.

We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice, 2016, 160 min

In 2007, the First Nations Child and Family Caring Society of Canada and the Assembly of First Nations filed a complaint against Indian Affairs and Northern Development Canada, accusing it of discrimination. They argued that the family and child support services made available to First Nations children on reserves and in Yukon were underfunded and inferior to those offered to other Canadian children. Indigenous children were also six to eight times more likely to be placed in foster care – more often than not in non-Native homes. This situation was reminiscent of the assimilation and trauma caused by residential schools, which was also widely discussed during the trial.

Including the many appeals, the legal process spanned nine long years before finally ending in victory for the plaintiffs in 2016. We Can’t Make the Same Mistake Twice gives a voice to those involved in this legal battle, notably Cindy Blackstock, Executive Director of the FNCFCSC, who endured government spying and retaliation as a result of her central role in the trial. Waban-Aki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin guides us through the intricacies of the legal system while never losing sight of the real issues at stake: the welfare of children and the survival of Indigenous cultures.
