Finding Dawn (2006, run time: 73 minutes) and Snare (2013, run time: 3.5 minutes)  (Movie / Film)

Presented Laura Smith, Department of Art, Art History and Design, and with special guest speaker Emily Proctor (Odawa), MSU Tribal Extension Educator, Emmet County, who will speak on human trafficking and indigenous communities in the Great Lakes.

Cosponsored by the MSU American Indian Studies Program and the MSU College of Arts and Letters

FINDING DAWN puts a human face on a tragedy that has received precious little attention. Dawn Crey, Ramona Wilson and Daleen Kay Bosse are just three of the estimated 500 Aboriginal women who have gone missing or been murdered in Canada over the past 30 years. Acclaimed Metis filmmaker Christine Welsh embarks on an epic journal to shed light on these murders and disappearances that remain unresolved to this day.
2006, Winner, Amnesty International Film Festival, Gold Audience Award

Spare and visually arresting, with a haunting soundtrack, SNARE is a performance-based piece that captures the brutality of violence against aboriginal women, as well as the possibility of healing and grace.
Nominated, Best Experimental Film, Yorkton Golden Sheaf Awards
