Film Club

Get your popcorn, we’ve got the film. Together we will be part of OECTA’s premier Film Club featuring Reel Injun, a NFB Campus film produced by Neil Diamon, Catherine Bainbridge and Jeremiah Hayes.

This feature-length documentary takes an entertaining and insightful look at the portrayal of North American Indigenous people throughout a century of cinema. Featuring hundreds of clips from old classics as well as recent releases, the film traces the evolution of the “Hollywood Indian.” Cree producer Neil Diamond guides the audience on a journey across America to some of cinema’s most iconic landscapes and conducts candid interviews with celebrities like Clint Eastwood, Robbie Robertson and Jim Jarmusch. The film is a loving look at cinema through the eyes of the people who appeared in its very first flickering images and have survived to tell their stories in their own way. (ONF/NFB)
