Synopsis

This film is available online HERE

Inspired by a performance piece by Joleen Mitton, this short film features two Indigenous youths, a man and a woman, who recreate the dangers and threats they have faced from the beginning of colonization until now. Following a ritual purification of white influence, they return to the land where an elder incarnates wisdom and protection.
