“True North” je redak i nezaboravan pogled na život kanadskih starosedelaca iz perspektive jedne irske porodice tokom sedamdesetih i osamdesetih godina prošlog veka.

Pod Malroni (Paud Mulrooney), učitelj iz Limerika, došao je sa porodicom da živi sa plemenima Odžibve i Kri, tokom osetljivog perioda promene obrazovnog modela i prelaska sa sistema internata za decu starosedelaca, na mnogo humaniji sistem lokalnih škola. Učestvovao je u osmišljavanju novog nastavnog programa prilagođenog starosedelačkim tradicijama i načinu života

Malronijev film snimljen “super osmicom” i fotografije koje je sam izrađivao prikazuju život na jezeru Cat i rezervatu Ogoki Post.

Njegova kćerka Deirdre Malroni će lično predstaviti film na BIF- u i odgovarati na pitanja posle projekcije.

“True North” is a rare and unforgettable glimpse into the life of First Nations Canadians through the eyes of an Irish family throughout the 70s & 80s.

Paud Mulrooney, a school teacher from Limerick, Ireland, brought his wife and family to live with the Ojibway and Cree people. He was there at a critical period of transition from the Residential school system to a more enlightened native community-run school, developing a new curriculum suited to indigenous traditions.

Paud Mulrooney’s never-seen Super-8 films and self-developed photographs capture life on Cat Lake and Ogoki Post Reserves. His daughter Deirdre Mulrooney’s documentary gives us an insight into what drew Paud Mulrooney there through ethereal Super-8 reels and slow photography.

Deirdre Mulrooney will present True North in person at BIF, and take questions after the screening.
