Souvenir presents four short films addressing Indigenous identity and representation through reworked material from the National Film Board’s archives. Using montage, intercutting and juxtaposition, First Nations and Métis artists Kent Monkman, Caroline Monnet, Jeff Barnaby, and Michelle Latimer explore and deconstruct cinematic stereotypes and interrogate history. These short collage films, each derived from a distinct artistic vision, explore Canada’s complicated past—recasting documentation into critical inquiry and shining a harsh light on official inhumanity, appropriated iconography, and the politics of representation.

Produced by the National Film Board of Canada

 

A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
