The Original Shareholder Experience

U.S., 2022

In hyper-saturated faux infomercials, a Pueblo spokesperson hawks increasingly problematic cultural “product lines” for the Freedom Company. A caustic commentary on appropriation, Petyr Xyst’s award-winning short dissects the fictitious consequences of putting Indigenous culture up for sale.

DCP, color, 13 min. Director: Petyr Xyst.


U.S., 2016

An ambitious first feature by Adam and Zack Khalil, INAATE/SE summons the violent discord of colonization into a documentary narrative that decomposes into dissonant elucidations on the Seven Fires Prophecy as it relates to their own Ojibway community of Sault Ste. Marie. This early work introduces the critique of museum culture and settler-colonial imperialism, thematically present throughout their subsequent work. This screening kicks off a weekend of programming featuring work made by the Khalils and collaborators.

DCP, color, 71 min. Director: Adam Khalil, Zack Khalil.
