A short history of Indians in Canada @ Cannes Animation Day May 15th

A short history of Indians in Canada by Canadian director Nancy Beiman will be featured at the official screening on May 15th at 1.30 pm at the Palais B theatre as part of the Animaze Daze discoveries. The screening is part of animation day in Cannes' 4th edition, also including a panel discussion on May 16th. 

Synopsis: Coyote the Trickster, an ancient shape shifting Native First Nations character, appears in 21st century Toronto and takes a visiting Businessman on a symbolic tour of the darker side of Canada’s relationship with its “Indians” since the 1950s. But can Bob the Businessman learn anything from this experience? An actual 1953 law encouraged Native peoples to go to the cities while demanding that they leave town at night. This, and a story of birds flying into Toronto buildings, inspired noted author Thomas King to write the original story. The animation and design is meant to suggest that of cartoons from the 1950s. This film considers the possibility, or IMpossibility, of dialogue between two cultures that are literally in collision. 

Full Duration: 5 mins

Country of Production: Canada
