#LoveFactually | Directed by Sarah Goodman

#GichiKiiwenging | Directed by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers
#GichiKiiwenging is a tribute to the Anishinaabe, the original people of this land now known as Toronto, and their neighbours the Haudenosaunee and Wendat. This micro doc incorporates vertical panels—a nod to movie curtains—illustrating images of ongoing Anishinaabe connections to the land intersecting with horizontal panels depicting imagery of movement and travel—a nod to the Haudenosaunee Two Row Wampum. The spotlight will be on Anishinaabemowin language and the spirit of the people on whose land Hot Docs takes place.
