Venue: National Maritime Museum, Greenwich

As part of the ORIGINS OFFSHOOTS Indigenous Cultures Film Season at the National Maritime Museum, join us for a screening of Métis director Shane Belcourt’s first feature film, TKARONTO. Given its UK premiere in ORIGINS 2009, the film follows two thirty-something indigenous Canadians as they struggle to make sense of their First Nations identity in a modern world.

The film will be preceded by an optional gallery tour in the Museum’s new Tudor & Stuarts Seafarers gallery on North American indigenous cultures, led by Dr. Stephanie Pratt. Stephanie is an Independent Scholar and Curator, and Ambassador at Large for the Crow Creek Dakota Hunkpati and Tribal Council, Fort Thompson, South Dakota USA.  

Stephanie will give a post-screening talk chaired by ORIGINS Festival director Michael Walling with time for audience Q&A.
