I've just learned that it's been 2 years to the day that singer songwriter Willie Dunn passed away. It was a massive privilege to have met him and to help share his music through the Native North America (Vol. 1) compilation on Light In The Attic Records. Tonight, we'll be honouring Willie's legacy w/ a screening of his National Film Board of Canada produced The Other Side of the Ledger: An Indian View of the Hudson's Bay Company (1972, co-directed by Martin Defalco). Joining us for the evening will be Shingoose (Curtis Jonnie) and David McLeod from NCI FM - The Spirit of Manitoba for a special Q&A. We will also be screening Duke Redbird's The Paradox of Norval Morrisseau (co-directed by Henning Jacobsen and featuring Shingoose). Please join us at Winnipeg's Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art for an celebration of music, art, film, discussion, and culture... PEACE
