Caroline Monnet

A visual artist and filmmaker of Algonquin ancestry, Monnet has exhibited around the globe. Ikwé, her striking film debut, was an experimental short on the intergenerational transmission of traditional knowledge. Additional film credits include the short drama Roberta and the documentary Tshiuetin. Her exhilarating short film Mobilize reframes archival images from the NFB collection to thrilling effect. “I want to speak about a people moving forward, a people who are mobilizing themselves,” she said of the film in a 2015 interview. “We are contemporary, culturally rooted and constantly on the move.”
