Strange Territory

Jessie Short (Metis) & Ashley Bedet • 3:42 • 2017 • Canada


Strange Territory follows Shim, a transparent eyeball, in this meditation on the intricacies of pleasure and desire. Erotic fulfilment could very well be equal parts exploration as it is knowing your own self and desires, ridiculous as that playful examination can be.

Calving

Waking up after thousands of years of being encased in ice, he is hungry, and he is still an Apex predator, at the top of the food chain. The soundtrack is composed of samples of audio from the largest mass calving event in recorded history (when arctic ice melts and collapses into the ocean). There's a new monster in town.

Not Indian Enough

A Native woman confronts her cousin, who has been spreading rumors that she isn't Native.

Hickey Gone Wrong (7)

Jay Cardinal Villeneuve • 7:29 • 2015 • Canada • English


Poor young Grant has his first hickey and it is the size of Texas. Hoping to hide it from his parents, he quickly learns that will be impossible since the whole town of Fort Smith, NWT, already knows and won’t let him live it down.

No Reseervations

Trevor Carroll (Ojibway) • 11:04 • 2017 • Canada • English


Protests erupt as an Indigenous Corporation attempts to build a pipeline under an unsuspecting neighborhood as both sides declare their voices.

Ponskiwon (Apocalypse)

Mathis Ottawa (Atikamekw) • 3:11 • 2016 •

Consequences of a Thief
