“My Once Life; The Urban Rez; Missing Indigenous” Film Screening

May 23 @ 7:30 pm


Taking inspiration from T.C. Cannon’s interrogation of American history and popular culture through his Native lens, this film series at the Peabody Essex Museum showcases contemporary award-winning films created by Native filmmakers, artists and activists.

T.C. Cannon: At the Edge of America will be open before each film.

Join PEM for a screening of three short films: Pamela J. Peters’ My Once Life, a hybrid video poem about the continuing impact of colonization on tribal peoples; The Urban Rez, episode five of Viceland’s docu-series RISE, which looks into Canada’s largest Urban Rez as they take back the streets, battling the intergenerational effect of residential schools, poverty, high crime and violence directed at girls and women; and Missing Indigenous, an award-winning 48-hour film project set in a rural reservation town where two detectives investigate the homicide of a young woman marked with a killer’s deadly signature. My Once Life, directed by Pamela J. Peters (Navajo), 4 minutes; RISE S1/E5: The Urban Rez, directed by Michelle Latimer (Métis/Algonquin), 45 minutes; Missing Indigenous, directed by LaRonn Katchia (Wasco/Paiute), 7 minutes.
