FANCY DANCE announces the arrival of a major directorial talent: Erica Tremblay. Her unflinching exploration of marginalization uses a mystery narrative as a springboard for an oblique coming-of-age story, lovingly and luminously enacted by Gladstone and Deroy-Olson. Tremblay’s juxtaposition of settler violence against the strength of Indigenous communities offers a nuanced account of the human costs of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women epidemic and the possibilities of healing for those left behind. This event is sponsored by the Department of Performing and Media Arts, American Indian and Indigenous Studies Program (AIISP), and the Cornell Cinema.
March 23rd, 6:00 p.m., Cornell Cinema
