Logbook 2 - Boozhoo from Pine Creek!

// Wapikoni mobile

With less than a week to go we are nearing the final stages of editing for four fantastic and varied films. 

Just the final touches are left for Ray Sanderson's film based on his life as a blind man and single father after loosing his sight due to gun violence. Ray gave his editing input by listening to the film and having the images described to him. The final cut is an inspiring look at one man's journey of strength and forgiveness that resonates across all ages. 

Filming wrapped for Terrie McIntosh's film "When Spirit Calls" this past week and Terrie has begun editing her captivating and artistic vignettes in the studio. After three magical nights of shooting under the stars Terrie and her four children will be seen in this experimental film revolving around Terrie's spiritual path. 

Wapikoni and Minegoziibe School's Grade 12 class have been busy travelling the reserve to interview local women of all ages for their film based around the theme of missing and murdered Aboriginal women. The experimental film features touching testimonies and beautiful, textual images of the natural surroundings. 

Two young men Clint Moosetail and Grant Nepinak are directing a youthful, documentary style film on the tradition of duck hunting in the Pine Creek community. The audience will have the chance to venture into the bush and discover a young persons experience of hunting. 

The community screening will take place on Tuesday October 21st, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Minegoziibe Anishinabe School (Pine Creek)- in the gym! Free snacks and refreshments will be donated by the Brighter Futures Initiative and Pine Creek Band Council. Chief Charlie Boucher will be opening the evening with an Elder. We look forward to seeing many people there and celebrating the contributions of all our participants!
