Colonization Road: Free film

Free film Wednesday March 21 at the Broadway Theatre
Saskatchewan Intercultural Association presents the 6th annual Reel to Real Anti-Racism Film Festival, featuring “Colonization Road” followed by a panel of speakers.

Synopsis: In towns throughout Ontario, there are startling reminders of the colonization of Indigenous territories and the displacement of First Nations people. Anishinaabe comedian and activist Ryan McMahon takes us to his hometown of Fort Frances and down its main drag, which is called Colonization Road. Similar streets have similar names in towns and cities across the province, direct reminders of the Public Lands Act of 1853 and its severe impact on First Nations, their treaties and their land in the name of “Canadian settlement.” On his journey through Ontario, McMahon explores the history of these roads, meets with settlers in solidarity and raises significant questions about “reconciliation” and what it means to “decolonize.”

I am Eleven

I am Eleven – Documentary screening
Thursday, March 17th 2016
Broadway Theatre
Door Open 6:30pm
Tickets: $10.00 (cash)

Australian filmmaker Genevieve Bailey travelled the world for six years talking with 11-year-olds to compose this insightful, funny and moving documentary portrait of childhood. From an orphanage in India, to a single-parent household in inner-city Melbourne, to bathing with elephants in Thailand, I AM ELEVEN explores the lives and thoughts of children from 15 countries. I AM ELEVEN weaves together deeply personal and at times hilarious portraits of what it means to sit at this transitional age. These young minds provide us with a powerful insight into the future of our world.

CISV chapters all over the world are bringing this documentary to their communities. We hope you can help make our screening a huge success here in Saskatoon by inviting all your friends, family and colleagues to this screening and of course coming yourself!

CISV (formerly Children’s International Summer Villages) is a global network of volunteers of all ages. We are an independent and non-political organization with chapters in over 200 cities worldwide. CISV’s unique educational programmes bring together young people from different backgrounds, developing cross-cultural knowledge and leadership. By encouraging respect for cultural differences, common values and self-awareness, CISV empowers each participant to incorporate these values into their lives as they become global citizens and strive for a more peaceful world. Young people take an active role in programme planning, developing key leadership and communication skills.

CISV Canada is active from coast to coast! From Victoria to Halifax, CISVers are promoting CISV values in their local communities. Each year, youth and adults from these same communities travel to international CISV programmes around the world. There are as many opportunities for involvement locally as internationally: CISV has a dynamic national network of young people. This group, called the Junior Branch (JB), is dedicated to organising regional and national activities for Canadian youth. Each local CISV chapter has an active group of Junior Branch members, open to anyone who wants to be involved (starting at age 10). JB organizes regular activities, community projects, workshops and mini camps. Completely youth-led, Junior Branch applies the CISV goals to the local community while participants learn and develop leadership.
