The Ontario debut of Brian Jungen and Duane Linklater’s film Modest Livelihood takes place at the Art Gallery of Ontario this month. The film will be shown hourly (except Sundays) from October 26 2013 to June 15 2014.
The film was shot by Jungen, Linklater and American film-maker Jesse Cain during a moose hunt undertaken by the artists and Jungen’s uncle Jack Askoty; the title refers to land rights issues and the provisions of Treaty B which acknowledged the aboriginal hunting rights, in a qualified way.
The film has had international exposure. Modest Livelihood was shown in Vancouver in June and July at the Catriona Jeffries Gallery.
