Exhibit Berger Inquiry: A Hands-On History Exhibition 2013-03-09 All Day
Description

Come visit this exhibition on the McKenzie Valley Pipeline Inquiry. The exhibition marks the 35th anniversary of Judge Berger’s final report on the pipeline and shows how the inquiry gave voice to the Aboriginal people whose traditional territory would have been affected. Hanging above the exhibition are beaver stretchers with twenty historical images shot by UBC Professor Michael Jackson during the Community hearings. On the walls are life-sized portraits of key organizers shot by photographer Linda MacCannell.

This is a highly interactive opportunity for all students - Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal - to engage with the Mackenzie Vally Pipeline Inquiry and the issues it raises. These same issues are being raised in British Columbia today. In the workshop activity, students will be provided with original testimony - in both written and audio form - that speaks to the historic, legal and environmental impacts the decision would have on the Dene and Inuit way of life. Students are then asked the critical question: "Put yourself in Judge Berger's chair. Decide what Canada should do."

Film "Stories We Tell" a film by Sarah Polley 2013-03-09 15:00:00
Description

 

 

Canada, 2012, 109 minutes; PG

WINNER! BEST CANADIAN FILM & BEST DOCUMENTARY! --Toronto Film Critics

When actor-turned-director Sarah Polley was a teenager, her siblings joked about how little she looked like her father, English-born writer Michael Polley. Her beautiful, charismatic mother, Diane, had died a few years before that, and the burr stayed under her saddle until she began a more thorough investigation of her extended family’s puzzling secrets.

The result is Stories We Tell, a kaleidoscopic look at what goes into one family’s autobiography. She interviewed virtually everyone who was or is involved in the saga, including her many siblings, who come across as a likable, truth-prone bunch. The superbly crafted film is nicely framed by a recording session, shot by Polley, with her dad reading his dryly written recollection of the times.

This is fleshed out by home movies, archival footage, and deftly interwoven re-creations, adding to the mystery as much as they explicate it….Misbehaviour, especially as it was viewed in the Toronto of the 1960s and ’70s, is a central topic.  –Georgia Straight
