Join us for a Q+A with director Lindsay McIntyre to discuss a collection of her short films.
Working in 16mm film using experimental and handmade techniques, Lindsay McIntyre’s short films circle themes of portraiture, place, form and personal histories. Interested simultaneously in the apparatus of cinema and representation, she bridges gaps in collective experience and remains dedicated to integrating theory and practice, form and content. She hopes to share authentic stories including from the generations of urban Inuit who have been displaced from Inuit Nunangat. Her current research involves the auto-ethnographical exploration of intergenerational trauma as well as a project linking land use, art practices, cultural knowledge and resource extraction in the circumpolar north.
Moderated by Lana Lin, Director of the Graduate Certificate in Documentary Media Studies. Co-produced with Documentary Program Associates Cacau Araujo (Doc Studies ’22 & Media Studies ’23) and Tiffany Jiang (Doc Studies ’22 & Media Studies ’23).
