The Winning of The North

Eva Manly

1989, 10:00 minutes, colour, English


The Winning of The North takes a playful look at negotiations. It suggests parallels between early trade negotiations in which aboriginal people lost power to exercise their right to self-determination and the recent Free Trade negotiations between Canada and the USA. The connections made are implicit rather than explicit.
Viewers are invited to see the video as an unfinished production in whose completion they can participate by: 1. choosing from two suggested scenes and scripting them, 2. suggesting their own additional scenes.
