Revelstoke has a special opportunity to view a documentary and ask its creator questions after the show.
Nadia McLaren is an artist, writer and filmmaker originally from northern Ontario. Nadia’s Ojibway and recently joined the Revelstoke School District as the elementary aboriginal support worker.
Muffins for Granny is a documentary that weaves together home footage, animation, music including traditional First Nations songs, archival footage and interviews with six elders to tell the story of cultural survival in the era of residential schools.
McLaren shares her grandmother’s story through home movie footage and via interviews with elders whose lives were deeply impacted by residential school experiences.
Muffins For Granny (88 minutes, 2008) shares the deeply emotional impact of the elders’ experiences, in what’s been described as a “raw and honest” documentary.
After the show, McLaren will engage the audience in a question and answer session.
The film starts at 7 p.m. at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre. See the Revelstoke Mountaineer events calendar for more details.
