Ali Kazimi Launches “Beyond Extinction: Sinixt Resurgence” at DOXA Documentary Film Festival 2022

Rungh is pleased to partner with the 2022 DOXA Documentary Film Festival (Vancouver) for the World Premiere of Governor General Award winning Ali Kazimi’s new documentary “Beyond Extinction: Sinixt Resurgence”. The launch will be at the ViFF Centre – Vancity Theatre on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 2pm. This is a hybrid event and you can attend in person or online.

Ali Kazimi is a filmmaker, author and media artist whose work deals with race, social justice, migration, history and memory. He is the recipient of the 2019 Governor General’s Award for Visual and Media Arts. In “Beyond Extinction”, he traces Indigenous matriarchs who revive traditions and fight to save an ancient burial ground in British Columbia’s Slocan Valley. Declared “extinct” by the Indian Act, the film documents their intimate living histories and their decades long struggle for recognition.
