Into the Middle of Nowhere

World Premiere
Anna Frances Ewert | 15 mins

This documentary celebrates the uniqueness of childhood and the nonexistence of limits to a child’s imagination. In an outdoor nursery in the woods, children create their own individually constructed worlds and can test out the boundaries of reality. The environment allows them to explore everything through their own experience and imagination while also bringing to the foreground their personal and collective development. The woods become the place where the normal rules and regulations of society come to a halt and where the children transform the surroundings with their play. The beauty and the challenges of growing up are already hinted at.

Nutshimit – on the land

European Premiere
Sarah Sandring | | 51 mins

SCREENING IN ATTENDANCE OF: Dr. Colin Samson, Author and Professor of Sociology at the University of Essex, long-time Activist for Innu rights and Delegate to the United Nations Working Group on Indigenous Populations (2004)

NUTSHIMIT – on the land tells the present-day story of one of the last semi-nomadic hunting people of Canada, the Mushuau Innu of Labrador. The Mushuau Innu
themselves commissioned the film for their children and coming generations of Innu to create a visual legacy of their continuing life on the land, which they call
Nutshimit.

The Innu teenagers Becca, Sage, Todd and Pinip are staying at different hunting camps with their families. Their adventures and conversations with their grandparents
weave an intimate and profound portrait of a people whose survival, history and worldview is intertwined with the land, the animals, the plants and the spirit world.
Only between the lines, the presence of another, a threatening society becomes tangible.

Nutshimit – on the land is part of a greater documentary collaboration and filmmaker exchange with the community of Natuashish, which also created a film training initiative for young Innu.
