Silla is a short documentary about Silla and Rise, an Ottawa based Inuit throat-singing & beat-making trio. The film follows the band members as they play live shows, it delves into the historical suppression of Inuit traditions, and how they’re reviving and reclaiming a beautiful art form.
Mamandagokwe is a short documentary film showcasing Dara Wawatay-Chabot's life and the historical context of her community and the Algonquin Nation, including a focus on her story through beadwork and how Indigenous youth find beauty in the struggle.
