Indigenous Peoples Weekend

Songs in Stone: An Arctic Journey Home
Friday, October 10 at 5:30 pm; reception to follow
In 1998, Canadian filmmaker John Houston (Yale ’75) directed and co-wrote his first film — Songs in Stone: An Arctic Journey Home. This award-winning one-hour documentary, shot mainly on Baffin Island in the wilds of the Canadian Arctic, pays tribute to the sculptors and printmakers of Cape Dorset, and to John’s parents, the late James and Alma Houston, whose historic collaboration launched Inuit art onto the world stage. Our screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Mr. Houston and a reception in his honor. Free Admission
