Projection of the indigenous movie The Grizzlie, directed by Miranda de Pencier, followed by a discussion

About this Event

This Fall, the Ottawa Public Library is proud to present an indigenous Film series in partnership with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO and the Ottawa Art gallery. The three events start at 7 pm at the Alma Duncan Salon of the Ottawa Art Gallery and will all be followed by a discussion led by members of the Indigenous community.

About the movie

This movie is inspired by a true story and is set in Kugluktuk, Nunavut. In a community where despair, violence, drugs and alcohol lead a lot of the villagers to commit suicide, a group of Inuit students' lives are transformed when they are introduced to the sport of lacrosse.

Followed by a discussion in English

Presented by the Ottawa Public Library in partnership with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO and the Ottawa Art gallery.

The Ottawa Public Library is pleased to thank the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association (FOPLA), for their generous sponsorship of the event.
