There are No Fakes

A painting, apparently the work of an iconic Native artist, leads the rockstar who buys it into the tragic, brutal world of an art forgery ring in Canada’s far north.

Live Q&A with Director Jamie Kastner and Artist Rihkee Strapp:

Join us for a live stream event, with director of ‘There Are No Fakes’ Jamie Kastner, and artist Rihkee Strapp, where audience members can submit Q&A questions in the chat box live.

Jamie Kastner is the director and co-producer of the film, and a documentary filmmaker whose work has played at festivals including TIFF, London, Rotterdam, Hot Docs, been commissioned by BBC Storyville, ZDF/Arte, TVO, Bell Media and sold around the world on various platforms, won prizes, and resounded with audiences and critics alike.

Rihkee Strapp is a two-spirit (Ayakweh) Metis born in Red Lake, Ontario. Rihkee’s arts practice centers around nuances of identity, and cultural appropriation. They are most interested in experiences that are both playful and transformative in terms of challenging assumptions and stereotypes.

Tyson Stewart will be moderating the discussion. Tyson is an Anishinaabe (Temagami) film and media scholar and artist who teaches Indigenous cultural expression and representation in the department of Indigenous Studies at Nipissing University.
