Call Me Human/Je m’appelle Humain

Call Me Human/Je m’appelle Humain
Canada, 2020. Directed by Kim O’Bomsawin. 78 min. G
Presented in French language with English subtitles.

This presentation is sponsored by Virginia Medland

“Sauvage”, says Joséphine Bacon, “means to be wholly free”. When elders leave us, a link to the past vanishes along with them. Innu writer Joséphine Bacon exemplifies a generation that is bearing witness to a time that will soon have passed away. With charm and diplomacy, she leads a charge against the loss of a language, a culture, and its traditions. On the trail of Papakassik, the master of the caribou, Call Me Human proposes a foray into a people’s multimillennial history, in company with a woman of great spirit who has devoted her life to passing on her knowledge and that of her ancestors. In her language, Innu means “human”.
