2:00 PM – 3:30 PM
Director Marcia Connolly and producer Katherine Knight introduce this one-off screening of their documentary about Inuit artist Annie Pootoogook. Pootoogook describes her drawing process and the personal experiences that inform her art. Images of the arctic landscape, her Cape Dorset community, domestic interiors, her artwork, and a series of interviews capture the artist’s perspective. The film contextualizes Pootoogook as a third generation contemporary female artist at a threshold of opportunity as she prepares and attends an important solo exhibition at The Power Plant. Following the screening curator Nancy Campbell, who organized Pootoogoook’s first solo exhibition at a public gallery at The Power Plant in 2005, joins the filmmakers in discussion.
