From her first film, Christmas at Moose Factory (1971, 13 min.), Alanis Obomsawin has devoted her lifework to the stories of children and to their futures. This conversation between the artist and communications and media scholar Monika Kin Gagnon will focus on the importance of voice in Obomsawin’s filmmaking. Together they will explore the intimate nature of sound, touch upon her singing and music and introduce the five new films Obomsawin has made from her personal sound archives over the COVID-19 lockdowns.
