(Jadis M. Dumas, Canada, 2019, 72 min)

Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2020: Feature Films
** Co-presented with Longhouse Media as part of the continuing Indigenous Showcase series **

Another Word for Learning is a unique documentary about the freedom to choose ones own education, even if that means leaving the school system altogether. Following a mother and daughters intimate journey of (re)discovering their connection to their culture while living in Vancouvers Downtown Eastside, we see what repercussions Aishas educational choices will have on her family and community. Ultimately Another Word demonstrates how the decision to self-direct ones education can pave a way to broader decolonization.

In a world where school diplomas are supposed to offer access to the next rung on the social and economic ladder, can those who dont fit into the dominant public school model still survive  and thrive?

About the filmmaker:
Jadis Mariette Dumas is a multidisciplinary artist working for over seven years as an independent filmmaker and editor, specializing in documentary and video art. Primarily self-taught, she also completed Capilano Universitys Documentary Film Programme. Since then she has been a videographer and editor on various films being shown through international festivals, and is excited to be sharing her first feature film on decolonizing education, premiering at Montréals RIDM this year. She is passionate about producing honest and beautiful storytelling through film which inspires social justice engagement.
