Indigenous Studies (INDG) - Indigenous Screen Cultures

INDG 2206  Indigenous Screen Cultures


Any 18 credits completed.


Four hours of screening and lecture per week for a total of 48 hours. This amount of time will allow for a full lecture, film screening, and discussion.




Students explore the voices and visions of Indigenous peoples through close readings of historically significant films and television programs. Influential productions, such as Incident at Restigouche (1984), The Rez (1996- 97), and Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001), are studied in-depth for their portrayals of Indigenous culture and politics. After an historical overview of cinematic representations of Indigeneity, students examine recent films and television programming that challenge stereotypical representations by highlighting the diversity of Indigenous perspectives. This course may be credited towards English Studies.
