The REDress REdress Project

Tina Keeper


Canada, Social Activism/Artist Documentary, 2012
16 min, HD, Color
English

 

In Manitoba, over the past 2 decades, 75 Aboriginal women have gone missing or have been murdered. This documentary contrasts the concepts implicit in the targeted violence towards Aboriginal women - that they are faceless/voiceless/lifeless - against the courage and tenacity of Aboriginal women who raise their voices against violence and systemic failings, as mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties and warriors. The film also profiles the art installation "The REDress Project," by Metis artist Jaime Black, which was an aesthetic response to the 600 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in Canada, with the aim of drawing attention to the gendered and racialized nature of violent crimes against Aboriginal women.
