Guelph Film Festival Screening: Warrior Women and Nuuca

EVENT DESCRIPTION

Warrior Women

Christina D. King & Elizabeth A. Castle | USA
64 min

An evocative meditation on Indigenous women’s integral connection to land and the ways in which the extractive industry’s rape of the earth is directly linked to the violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and girls. 

In the 1970s, with the swagger of unapologetic Indianness, organizers of the American Indian Movement (AIM) fought for Native liberation as a community of extended families. 

Through their story, Warrior Women explores what it means to balance a movement with motherhood and how activist legacies are passed down from generation to generation in the face of a government that has continually met Native resistance with mass violence. 

 

Nuuca

Michelle Latimer ⋅ CANADA/USA ⋅
12 min

Over the last decade, an oil boom in North Dakota has seen the state’s population double with primarily male workers flocking to the region. With this dramatic increase has come an influx of drugs, crime and sexual violence. On the Fort Berthold Indian
reservation alone, rates of sexual violence have increased 168%, with Indigenous women most affected. 

Juxtaposing the ravaged yet starkly beautiful landscape with personal testimony from young Indigenous women living on the reservation, Nuuca is an evocative meditation revealing the connections between the rape of the earth and the violence perpetrated against Indigenous women and girls.
