This special episode features an interview with Alanis Obomsawin, an Indigenous Abenaki filmmaker, singer, activist and ‘national treasure’ from Turtle Island/Canada. We spoke online late in February with reference to a major survey exhibition of Alanis’ life and work, ‘The Children Have to Hear Another Story’, 12 February – 18 April, at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin.
Many thanks to Lilli Heinemann from HKW and Michael Shu from the National Film Board of Canada for making this possible.
