As part of our 3-part Indigenous Cultures Film Season, join us for a screening of Métis director Shane Belcourt’s first feature film, Tkaronto. 

The film follows two thirty-something indigenous Canadians as they struggle to make sense of their First Nations identity in a modern world.

The film will be preceded by an optional gallery tour in the Museum’s new Tudor & Stuarts Seafarers gallery on North American indigenous cultures, led by Stephanie Pratt.

Stephanie will give a post-screening talk chaired by ORIGINS festival director, Michael Walling with time for audience Q&A.

The Indigenous Cultures Film Season has been guest-curated by ORIGINS Festival.

Film running time: 105 mins

Film rating: PG

Drinks and snacks will be available to purchase.
