January 15 – March 31, 2011

Organized by ImagineNATIVE

Artists: Zoe Leigh Hopkins, Helen Haig-Brown, Lisa Jackson, Taika Waititi, Sterlin Harjo, Blackhorse Lowe, Rima Tamou

Embargo Collective is an international group of seven Indigenous artists who have been collaborating and challenging one another to create new films.

Each of the artists has an impressive body of work, demonstrating exceptional talent and vision. Each has a different focus in media arts: documentary, fictional narrative and experimental. And each represents a diversity of Indigenous nations. They represent a generation of contemporary media artists who are at the forefront of the changing global landscape of Indigenous cinema and media arts.
