About the Event

Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil’s award-winning film re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, The Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations in their indigenous community within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With acute geographic specificity, and grand historical scope, the film fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity.
Includes a post-screening conversation with co-director Adam Khalil (Ojibway), an artist and filmmaker featured in the upcoming 2019 Whitney Biennial. Drinks and food available for purchase at the cafe from 5:30–7:30 p.m.
75 minutes, Digital | Directed by Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil
Co-presented with LACMA – screening paired with Khalil’s Empty Metal (2018) on Thursday, June 6.
