  • This week we are thinking of Loretta Saunders, an Inuk women who was writing her thesis on missing and murdered indigenous women when she herself was murdered. Trial starts this week for her roommates, who have pled guilty to the murder. Still no inquiry into #MMIW.
  • The Federal and Ontario Budgets were announced this week. Both still chasing after the illusion of a balanced budget,  both are shock full of austerity measures that will inevitably hurt women.
  • Lots of great things on the GUTS Blog this week! Indigenous actors walked off the set of an Adam Sandler comedy, saying the satirical Western’s script is insulting to both Native Americans and women.  Check out Julie MacIsaac’s review of Tanis Parenteau’s new film, A Big Black Space which is most definitely not another “Hollywood Indian Movie.”
  • Also, Kristina Laban speaks to the organizers of Not Enough Fest Edmonton, who are tackling inclusivity in the city’s music scene.
  • I’m so embarrassed for Madonna this week. Who, after weeks of controversies, has really put the nail in the coffin by quoting Austerity Queen Margaret Thatcher and tagging it #rebelheart. No Madonna, just no.
  • Check out this incredibly good series on transitioning from Halifax’s Laura Shepherd.
  • omg omg omg ROBYN!!!!! The Swedish pop star hosts a free one-day tech conference for 200 teenage girls, confirming yet again that she is the queen mother of everything good and great. (Dear Robyn, if you can hear me, please make more music so that I can dance very, very hard.)
  • In anticipation of our fourth issue, we’ve launched our MOMS anonymous survey; we ask you questions, you answer them, we post them! It’s that easy and its happening right now!

Laughing in the Dark: Watching Melanated Films with White People

Films for and about Black people and people of colour are worthy of celebration. The experience of watching these films as a person of colour, however, depends on who else is in the theatre.
