A Short Film by Indigenous Youth
Iskwêwiwin (being a woman) is a short film by Indigenous Youth that will have a public showing in the Westbury Theatre on Saturday, March 5 at 2pm.
Iskwêwiwin is also a multi-media installation on exhibit in the Westbury Theatre Lobby that intrinsically weaves film, music and handmade traditional ribbon skirts into a powerful exploration of self awareness, diversity and resilience. A compelling showcase of young Indigenous women finding their voices; their interpretation of identity and relationship with their environment ultimately realizing their collective strength to find calm in chaos. Iskwêwiwin reflects a desire to create space for youth-led dialogue and creative expression for the contemporary Indigenous social justice movement.
