The renowned video artist Sky Hopinka will be coming to Oberlin. Hopinka’s “ethnopoetic’’ videos are without parallel; they give life and voice to indigenous languages, narratives, and histories, from ancestral cosmologies to testimonies from a water protectors at Standing Rock. They are often abstract, composed of digitally altered ‘‘videoscape’’ and fragments of narratives.

Hopinka is a Ho-Chunk Nation national and a descendent of the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. He is a video artist, a language teacher, and teaches film, video, and animation at Simon Fraser College. He will be here to share an hour’s worth of films and talk about his art practice, his work as a language teacher (Chinuk Wawa), and his interactions with the lands on this continent.

The screening will run for 63 minutes and will be followed by a reading and or Q&A session.

This event is graciously cosponsored by the Oberlin Film Co-op, Students for Energy Justice, and Oberlin College Departments of Environmental Studies and Cinema Studies.
