A portrait of five Vancouverites living on society’s fringes during the 2010 Winter Olympics, Luk’Luk’I takes us into uncharted territory, falling somewhere between a fiction we need to see and a documentary we wish didn’t have to exist. The cast includes Angel Gates, Cree skateboarder Joe Buffalo, Ken Harrower, Eric Buurman and Angela Dawson. The actors participated directly in writing the screenplay, using their own real-life experiences – including Harrower’s experience as a gay man with a disability and Dawson’s experience as local underground culture figure “Rollergirl” – to inform and create their characters’ storylines. Actor and advocate Angel Gates, who is featured in the film, died suddenly in September 2022. Read more about her life and influence in this story by the filmmaker and members of her community.

Cinema at the Museum presents a series of films that combine narrative with documentary-style techniques to establish connections with filmmakers, actors, and modern icons from the prairies and great plains. These films play with the notions of the human experience and how these personal realities are impacted by our communities, environments and people that are the most familiar to us.
