Free continuous screening

The film Ishkueu Territory Woman’s Territory, directed by Claude Hamel (Canada, 2018) features eight female storytellers, writers and poets performing live at the Atalkukan Tales and Legends Festival in Mashteuiatsh.

Virginia Pesemapeo Bordeleau recounts the origins of her relationship with bears; her works shed light on the documentary. Joséphine Bacon and Natasha Kanape Fontaine offer their vision of the world while Marie-Andrée Gill recites poems with brute force. Sonia Robertson, Festival Director, Alice Germain, Adventure Guide, and Telesh Begin, Shaman, discover their territory, while Kathia Rock chants beautifully in Innu and in French.

This film was presented as part of the 37th edition of the Festival International du Film sur l’Art, in 2019.
