Cinema Politica & Saskatoon Anarchist Bookfair Present: DetermiNATION Songs

Join us for an evening of inspiring and challenging music and spoken word! This event is a joint presentation of Cinema Politica Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Anarchist Bookfair, and is part of National Youth Arts Week. First we will watch the film DetermiNATION Songs, and then be treated to spoken word by local poets, and a set by local rapper extraordinaire, Eekwol.

The Film: In DetermiNATION Songs, three Aboriginal artists use voice, rhythms, samples, and guitar riffs to reveal a vibrant Aboriginal music scene, while exposing the realities and struggles in their communities. Growing up, many young Aboriginal artists experienced a loss of traditional culture and language. Music became a vehicle to reclaim native language and aspects of traditional culture that have been slowly eroding over centuries of colonial policy.

In the process, their work becomes a powerful source of strength, cultural renewal and political awareness for members of their community, particularly the youth, be it on or off reserve, in the city or in isolated settlements. For the broader public, these artists move people to dance, cry, think and act, all the while becoming more aware of the concerns facing Aboriginal people today.

The Artists: Spoken word by Ahmad Majid, Tala Tootoosis, Anna Free, and Zoey "Pricelys" Roy; hip hop by Eekwol
