Caribou in the Archive

A film by Jennifer Dysart
Produced by Jennifer Dysart and the Regent Park Film Festival Home Made Visible Project
8 minutes | 2019 | colour/black and white | documentary, experimental

In Caribou in the Archive, rustic VHS home video of a Cree woman hunting caribou in the 1990s is combined with NFB archival film footage of northern Manitoba from the 1950s. In this experimental film, the difference between homemade video and official historical record is considered. Northern Indigenous women hunting is at the heart of this personal found footage film in which the filmmaker describes the enigmatic events that led to saving an important piece of family history from being lost forever.

Dans « Caribou In The Archive », une vidéo VHS rustique montrant une femme Cri chassant le caribou dans les années 1990’s est combinée à une séquence de film d’archives de l’ONF datant des années 1950’s au nord du Manitoba. Dans ce film expérimental, la différence entre une vidéo faite maison et l’historique officiel est prise en compte. La pratique de la chasse des femmes autochtones du Nord est au cœur de ce film personnel contenant des images dans lequel la cinéaste décrit les événements énigmatiques qui ont conduit à la sauvegarde d’un élément important de l’histoire de la famille.
