Description

WISCONSIN ONLY.

In Joséphine Bacon’s language, Innu means “human,” and there is no word for “poet.” But Bacon has traversed and redefined these paradoxical identifiers exquisitely throughout her life, which we get to follow intimately in Kim O’Bomsawin’s CALL ME HUMAN. In this enchanting portrait of the legendary septuagenarian author, songwriter, and documentary filmmaker, Bacon tours the tremendous landscapes that have shaped her people’s language, culture, and traditions, whose preservation has been her life’s work.
