The University of Alberta Museums’ virtual exhibition continues to educate and inspire, this time with its film club discussion on I Am But a Little Woman (2010) by Gyu Oh, on June 25 at noon. Watch the film, then RSVP to reserve spot (free of charge) and receive discussion points.
From NFB.ca:Inspired by an Inuit poem first assigned to paper in 1927, this animated short evokes the beauty and power of nature, as well as the bond between mother and daughter. As her daughter looks on, an Inuit woman creates a wall hanging filled with images of the spectacular Arctic landscape and traditional Inuit objects and iconography. Soon the boundaries between art and reality begin to dissolve.
