In partnership with the Kingston School of Art, KCFF is proud to present Where the Willow Meets the Moon: People and Voices in the Work of Alanis Obomsawin, recognizing the master filmmaker as one of Canada’s most important artists. Nine posters of Alanis Obomsawin’s documentaries will be exhibited at the Kingston School of Art & Window Art Gallery (KSOA) from March 3-12, and will provide a launching point into the filmmaker’s approach regarding resistance and collective voices. Obomsawin is a member of the Abenaki Nation and has directed more than fifty-two films, and counting, over fifty-three years, including several documentaries for the National Film Board of Canada focusing on Indigenous rights.
