Cinema Curiosa Presents: INAATE/SE/
December 7 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm| Main Library (Traverse City)
Adam and Zack Khalil’s new film re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts the first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations in their indigenous community within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With acute geographic specificity and grand historical scope, the film fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity.
Release Date: 29 February 2016 (USA)
Runtime: 75 minutes
