The Original Shareholder Experience

An ambitious first feature by Adam and Zack Khalil, INAATE/SE summons the violent discord of colonization into a documentary narrative that decomposes into dissonant elucidations on the Seven Fires Prophecy as it relates to their own Ojibway community of Sault Ste. Marie. This early work introduces the critique of museum culture and settler-colonial imperialism, thematically present throughout their subsequent work. This screening kicks off a weekend of programming featuring work made by the Khalils and collaborators.
DCP, color, 71 min. Director: Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil.
