In celebration of National Indigenous Peoples Day, join us at City Library for a free screening of the newly-released documentary Wilfred Buck (2024 | 96 minutes).

Lisa Jackson’s portrait of Cree Elder Wilfred Buck moves between earth and sky, past and present, bringing to life ancient teachings of Indigenous astronomy and cosmology to tell a story that spans generations.

Adapted from Buck’s rollicking memoir, I Have Lived Four Lives, the film weaves together stories from his life, including his harrowing young years of displacement and addiction. Seamlessly fusing present-day scenes with cinematic re-enactments and archival footage, this intimate yet expansive documentary takes us on an inspiring journey to the space beyond, and to the spaces between us all.

Registration is not required, but it helps us anticipate attendance. If you register, you will also receive an email reminder the day before the event, as well as any updates about this program.
