Unusual, impressionistic documentary explores colonization through an intimate lens3 minute read 2:02 AM CDT
A powerful fusion of the personal and political, this documentary looks at Indigenous issues across the circumpolar North, embodied through the life and work of Inuk activist and human rights lawyer Aaju Peter.
Screening at the Dave Barber Cinematheque as part of the Human Rights Through Film program sponsored by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the doc (in English, Inuktitut, Danish and Kalaallisut, with English subtitles) is intimate, affecting and illuminating.
Directed by Danish filmmaker Lin Alluna, Twice Colonized is — according to the opening credits — “lived by” Peter. Attempting to break down the conventional (and often colonialist) relationship of observer and observed, this is an unusual documentary. Peter has collaborated closely as a writer and producer on the project, and at one key point, the film crew enters into her personal story.
Some viewers might remember the now 63-year-old Peter from 2016’s Angry Inuk (which Twice Colonized producer Althea Arnaaquq-Baril also worked on). She’s still angry here, with good reason.
