Mobile screenings

Wapikoni Mobile, in co-operation with Musique Nomade, is proud to announce the second season of Vélo Paradiso, its mobile film projections featuring a fleet of five three-wheeled bicycles, each equipped with a projector and a large screen. The First Nations Garden is pleased to welcome one of these mobile theatres, screening contemporary Indigenous works (a collection of the best short films and videos by Wapikoni and Musique Nomade). Vélo Paradiso was created for Montréal's 375th anniversary festivities, and took part in various cultural events in summer 2017, including La Grande Tournée du 375e (and its launch), the AGM of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, Falla at Tohu, the 10th anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Musique Nomade’s Nikamotan show.

Vélo Paradiso is inspired by the idea of celebrating togetherness and Montréal’s cultural and artistic diversity. It offers a showcase for the reality of young Indigenous people and their cultures, with the goal of breaking the cycle of prejudice and indifference through original productions and approaches. It contributes to changing perceptions and to promoting vital cultural rapprochement.
