Discard What You Heard is an Indigenous documentary film engaging in a reconnection with the land that profits Western societies’ colonial presence though asserting Indigenous sovereign rights and cultural pride.
Born in British Columbia, George Lenser has become a successful culinary chef and is working to build his reputation across Canada, and perhaps one day around the world. While travelling in Montreal, he met the Wapikoni Mobile film crew and decided to share his story.
Some members of the Leadership for the Ecozoic (L4E) network and the Critical Media Lab (CML) of McGill University will be participating as guest panelists and moderators in a discussion following the screening.
Drawing on the work of cultural historian Thomas Berry, L4E defines “ecozoic” as a new vision of living on Earth that allows the whole community of beings living on it to flourish. L4E strives to advance this emerging vision through collaborative research, learning and experimentation.
The CML, Critical Media Lab, is part of the L4E network and offers hands-on workshops in video, film and sound for members of the McGill community who wish to integrate these approaches into their teaching practices and research. Three of their film productions presented during the festival’s closing night will be discussed.
