In honour of the National Day of Truth & Reconciliation, The Division of Equity, People & Culture along with a variety of York University partners is hosting a series of film screenings on both the Keele and Glendon campuses. We encourage community members to engage with these media to support their learning on a path to reconciliation. We hope that these films will help you understand the impact of Residential Schools on Indigenous peoples and communities.
Muffins for Granny
Date: Tuesday, Sept. 26
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: Junior Common Room, 012G Winters College
Directed by Nadia McLaren Muffins for Granny is a remarkably layered, emotionally complex story of personal and cultural survival. McLaren tells the story of her own grandmother by combining precious home movie fragments with the stories of seven elders dramatically affected by their experiences in residential school. McLaren uses animation with a painterly visual approach to move the audience between the darkness of memory and the reality that these charismatic survivors live in today.
