Wednesday, March 9, 2022
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Online via Zoom

According to Haitian-Canadian writer, director, and award-winning podcast producer Yasmine Mathurin, One of Ours is her attempt at understanding what it means to heal and what it means to belong. This documentary explores the intersecting politics of Blackness and Indigeneity through the journey of a young man named Josiah Wilson. Please register now for a free virtual screening of this important film, which will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. "One of Ours is an exploration of belonging, Blackness and memory. My curiosity around these topics started in my childhood. I spent my early childhood in Haiti where I learned about Haitian history, from the genocide of the Tainos and Arawak who were the Indigenous people of Ayiti (Haiti), then the slave rebellion which made Haiti the first independent Black republic" - Yasmine Mathurin. This event is organized in cooperation between the Film Studies Program; FIMS; Office of EDI; OII at Western University.

Film Studies Program - Faculty of Arts & Humanities; Faculty of Information & Media Studies (FIMS); Sally Kewayosh (FIMS, Bkejwanong Territory, Walpole Island First Nation); the Office Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion; and the Office of Indigenous Initiatives at Western University.
