(16mm transfer to video, color, sound)
A society reshaped by fear and destruction in the near future. Nick tries to go about his
daily life in a broken down urban landscape, safe-proofing rooms against airborne threat,
but feels numb to both himself and the new reality of the world. His own fears play-out in
the fragmented images that fill his dreams as he searches for a way to navigate his isolation.
A short fiction film inspired by the Ars Moriendi (Art of Dying) religious beliefs of the Middle Ages.
Manoomin - The Sacred Food
(2006) 5 min.
A short documentary on the Anishinaabeg Native Americans of Northern
Minnesota and the wild rice (Manoomin) that they consider a sacred gift
from the Creator. The film tells the Creation and Migration stories
that are central to the tribe’s oral history and belief system
while showing the traditional process of hand-harvesting and parching
the wild rice. Biotech companies are currently researching ways to genetically
modify the rice and the community is fighting to keep it wild. Winner
of the 2006 Berlinale/Terra Madre Short Film Competition sponsored by
the Berlin Film Festival & Slow Food.
