Seeing Things visit Femspectives Festival // nîpawistamâsowin WE WILL STAND UP

21st February at 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Seeing things

Seeing Things is a group that meet up to see art, performances and cultural events put on by women across Glasgow and beyond. We think it’s more fun to go to see things together, and we usually have a cup of tea or coffee afterwards.  Our trips are always free. It would be great if you could come along.

What: Watching a film as part of Femspectives Film Festival
When: Friday 21st February @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm
Where: We will meet at Civic House (26 Civic Street, Glasgow, G4 9RH) at 6.45pm
Who with: Becca, Jenny
Why you should join us:

It is the UK premiere of Tasha Hubbard’s documentary nîpawistamâsowin: WE WILL STAND UP. In 2016 Colten Boushie, a young Cree man, was killed in Saskatchewan. nîpawistamâsowin: WE WILL STAND UP shines a light on the vast inequality and systemic racism within the Canadian legal system. Framed within Tasha Hubbard’s personal history, the piece reflects on the impact of colonialism and is hopeful for a better future.
