NARRATING THE INTIMATE

Inniun ueshkat mak anutshish

by Mary Menie Mark, 2020 (Canada)

Canada | 5 min | Original Version, English Subtitles

An elder reflects on the changing attitudes and habits of her Indigenous peoples and ponders on modernity’s individualism. Inniun ueshkat mak anutshish is a sharing of memories between mother and daughter through old photos and stories that breathe into the fabric of the screen. In a telling subtleness, the film comments on nuanced shifts in Innu social lives through the materiality of the contemporary home.

 

Director Mary Mark was born in Pakuashipi and is an involved member of her community, where she works in maternal and child health. Inniun ueshkat mak anutshish was her debut film, produced in collaboration with Wapikoni Mobile.

 

Her film has toured festivals such as the Montréal International Film Festival, the 27th Red National International, imagineNATIVE, the 46th American Indian Film Festival, and more.
