Navajo Star Wars


50 TICKETS AVAILABLE TO FIRST NATIONS PEOPLES TO ATTEND FOR FREE!

The first-ever major motion picture to be dubbed into the Navajo language—a joint venture between the Navajo Nation Museum, Lucasfilm Ltd., 20th Century Fox and Deluxe—makes its Canadian debut at TIFF Bell Lightbox with this special free screening. Transformed by the Navajo language, A New Hope gains new resonance in its original nods to Indigenous culture (“The Force”) and story of resistance to a colonial power. As the loss of Indigenous languages continues to be a major cultural concern, Navajo Star Wars reminds us of their vibrancy and relevance.

Date: Saturday June 21st, 2014
Location: TIFF Bell Lightbox (located at Reitman Square on the north-west corner of King and John Street) – 350 King Street, Toronto, Ontario 
Time: 3:30 pm (show time) 

A bus can be provided to anyone interested in attending. Bus would leave approximately 1:00 pm from the four corners. 

If interested in reserve your ticket to Navajo Star Wars - please RSVP with Krista Coppaway, Communications/Community Engagement Officer – 705-657-8045 ext. 209 or via email KristaC@curvelake.ca
