Film Schedule Thursday, October 19, 2017
Beautifully photographed, Niro’s film meditates on how one woman uses her art making to keep the memory of her husband alive and close to her, in this story of Mavis Dogblood (Kateri Walker), a Mohawk painter from Canada, haunted by the tragic death of her husband.
Niro’s 2015 short film Niagara will also be shown.
A discussion with director Shelley Niro and Rhéanne Chartrand, McMaster Museum of Art Curator of Indigenous Art, will follow the screening.
