Angry Inuk Film Screening + Panel Discussion

September 30, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

In a year where the words “reconciliation” and “colonialism” have been prominent in the mainstream Canadian conversation, where does mainstream veganism stand when Indigenous sovereignty is at stake?

That is the question we are hoping to start being able to ask and discuss.

Film synopsis:
Seal hunting, a critical part of Inuit life, has been controversial for a long time. Now, a new generation of Inuit, armed with social media and their own sense of humour and justice, are challenging the anti-sealing groups and bringing their own voices into the conversation. Director Alethea Arnaquq-Baril joins her fellow Inuit activists as they challenge outdated perceptions of Inuit and present themselves to the world as a modern people in dire need of a sustainable economy.

Panel discussion following the film will feature Inuit community members as well as prominent voices from the local Toronto vegan community.
Event will be updated once panelists are confirmed.

Agenda:
5:00pm – Doors open
5:30pm to 6:55pm – Film Screening
