The Monster Engine is a book, a demonstration, lecture and a gallery exhibition. The premise for all three came from one single question: What would a child’s drawing look like if it were painted realistically?
The 8th Fire debut at the 2011 Winnipeg Aboriginal Film Festival was well attended and very well received. I definitely recommend watching the series beginning in January. A lot of great contributors and a lot of great stories.
“Indigenous in the City” definitely struck a chord with not only Aboriginal Youth, but many non-Aboriginal audience in attendance. The structure of the film spoke to the struggles and legacy of indigenous people in Canada, but it did it in a way that instilled pride and showed hope to the future of relationships of Aboriginal People with Canada.
I am very much looking forward to future documentaries as well as all the new media and online content.
