RETURN TO INNOCENCE – THE TAIWANESE AMIS AND THE WORK TO RETURN, RECOVER AND RECLAIM THEIR HERITAGE


SATURDAY, MARCH 4TH, 2017 │ 6:00PM - 9:00PM
Innis College, Town Hall, 2 Sussex Avenue (at St. George, south of Bloor)

___________

Director Hu Tai-Li’s film “Returning Souls” tells the story of the Taiwanese indigenous people, the Amis, recovering their land, restoring customs and reclaiming their ancient artifacts.

Following the film, Professor Scott Simon of the University of Ottawa’s School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies, based on two decades of ethnographic work in Taiwan, will discuss issues of indigenous rights and cultural change among the Amis and other indigenous peoples in order to understand Hu Tai-li’s film in the wider socio-political context.

Professor Cara Krmpotich of University of Toronto’s iSchool Museum Studies program will draw on her ethnographic research with Canadian indigenous experiences of repatriation to discuss central themes of Director Hu Tai-Li’s film of indigenous Taiwanese efforts to repatriate material and ancestral remains, with a focus on the social, cultural, spiritual, museological and political issues evoked.

___________

Speakers: Cara Krmpotich, Faculty of Information (i-School), University of Toronto and Scott Simon, Speaker Department of Sociology and Anthropology, University of Ottawa

Moderator: Bart Testa, Cinema Studies Institute, University of Toronto
