Anaanaga: My Mother
Anaanaga: My Mother is a feature-length documentary presenting a longitudinal record (spanning more than seven years) of the intimate interactions between a blind Inuit single mother and her sighted daughter, in the backdrop of a social and cultural, racial and disability marginalization. Along with its poetic and existential focus, the film develops a strong critique of Canadian social institutions from the perspective of indigeneity, class, gender, and disability.
