INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./ it flies. falls./] (Directors Zack and Adam Khalil in Person)

This experimental documentary explores the Ojibwe story of the Seven Fires Prophecy, which has been interpreted as predicting the arrival of the Europeans in North America and the destruction they caused. Bold, smart, and unflinching, the film examines the relationship between tradition and modern indigenous identity. Copresented by the Augsburg Native American film series. 2016, US and Canada, 75 min.

Preceded by Jáaji Approx. (Directed by Sky Hopinka)
Jáaji Approx. explores the relationship between audio recordings of the filmmaker’s father and videos gathered of the landscapes they have traversed. The distance between the logger and the recordings, of recollections and of songs, new and traditional, narrows while the images become an expanding semblance of filial affect. “Jáaji” is a near translation for directly addressing a father in the Hočak language. 2016, US, 7:36 minutes.

A conversation between filmmakers Zack Khalil, Adam Khalil, and Sky Hopinka follows the screenings.
