The rebroadcast will also feature the recording from their screening Q&A/discussion event held at the theater in October. Panelists include: Shane McSauby, Kristin Mayer, and Krzysztof Lower.  One night only!

The broadcast will be 9pm-11:30pm on GRTV. Comcast Public Access Channel 25 in the city of Grand Rapids.

INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./] re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations in their indigenous community within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With acute geographic specificity, and grand historical scope, the film fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity.

Adam Shingwak Khalil (Ojibway) is a filmmaker and artist. His practice attempts to subvert traditional forms of ethnography through humor, relation, and transgression. Their films and installations have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Walker Arts Center, e-flux, UnionDocs, and Microscope Gallery. Adam is visiting as a part of a Midwest tour of the film, to research future projects, and present public programs. This event is presented by the newly formed Department of Visual and Media Arts at Grand Valley State University, curated by the Office for Public Culture, and made possible by the Kutsche Office of Local History, Wealthy Theatre, and ArtPeers. 

The video recording of the Q&A/discussion will still be available afterwards on GRTV & Vimeo, but this will be the only time it will air with the film itself on GRTV. For more information on the film, visit: http://www.inaatese.com/
