Drop-In Tours: Stories of Cinema—Indigenous Voices 

Drop-In Tours: Stories of Cinema—Indigenous Voices 

Discover cherished works in the museum’s core exhibition, Stories of Cinema,during a drop-in tour with museum educators. 

The Education and Public Engagement team invites visitors to explore Stories of Cinema, the Academy Museum’s ongoing core exhibition that presents diverse, international, and complex stories of moviemakers and the works they create.  

Join museum educators on Friday afternoons to explore spotlights on moviemakers and movie objects. In November, our Drop-In Tours will focus on Indigenous voices. Museum educators will spotlight the documentary Qapirangajuq: Inuit Knowledge and Climate Change (Canada, 2010) in the museum’s Impact/Reflection gallery and the complex narratives associated with the landscape of Paha Sapa (Black Hills), which is explored in Backdrop: An Invisible Art. The gallery includes the song “Remember Me When You See The Black Hills,” performed by Jaelyn McBride. Conversations with educators may also highlight Atanarjuat: The Fast Runner (2001) in the Significant Movies and Moviemakers gallery and Buffy St. Marie and Sacheen Littlefeather in the Academy Awards History gallery. 

All are welcome to join this public drop-in style gallery conversation, free with admission, from 1pm to 3pm. Meet educators in the exhibition, on Level 2, in the Wanda Gallery, or Level 3, in the Rolex Gallery.
