Darryl Nepinak, from Skownan First Nation, was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His short film Zwei Indianer Aus Winnipeg was selected for the 2009 Berlin International Film Festival. After making 15 short films Darryl took a break from filmmaking to work with drug and alcohol addiction in his community. He is returning to filmmaking and currently this “marvelous bastard” is writing The Band Office - a pilot for APTN, and is directing 10 short films with the National Film Board. A discussion led by Serge Abiaad will follow the screening on Darryl’s cinema, at times deadpan as well as engaging, on his sudden withdrawal from filmmaking and his return with several new projects. 10 films | 49 min
