Indigenous Showcase

53 minutes

This collection of shorts highlights Native filmmakers. One, Mountains of SGaana by the Haida Gaia filmmaker Christopher Auchter, uses elements of traditional art to tell the story of the abduction of Naa-Naa-Simgat and his lover’s journey to the bottom of the sea to rescue him. The faces of the humans are Disney-sweet, but the underwater realm looks like your most gorgeous nightmares, and Auchter’s mimicry of Haida tapestry brilliantly fragments space in one of the coolest split-screen devices ever.
