Themester 2021: Resilience
This fall, the College of Arts and Sciences’ Themester explores the theme of “resilience.” Impacted by existential challenges such as the current global pandemic, climate change, and increasingly intense and more frequent natural disasters, the foundations of human and ecological communities are vulnerable. How can humans and other species survive and thrive? This Themester 2021 engages in a discussion of these disturbances and the responses to them. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
Curated by the Themester: Resilience faculty and student committee in the College of Arts and Sciences, with support from IU Cinema. The screening is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and IU Cinema.

When elders leave us, a link to the past vanishes along with them. Innu writer Joséphine Bacon exemplifies a generation that is bearing witness to a time that will soon have passed away. With charm and diplomacy, she leads a charge against the loss of a language, a culture, and its traditions. On the trail of Papakassik, the master of the caribou, Call Me Human proposes a foray into a people's multimillennial history, in company with a woman of great spirit who has devoted her life to passing on her knowledge and that of her ancestors. In her language, Innu means “human.” In French with English subtitles.
