Yukon Media Artists

Kerry Barber

Kerry Barber is an award-winning filmmaker. She moved to Vancouver after transferring from Yukon School of Visual Arts in Dawson City, YT, her hometown, to Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She holds a BFA in Film, Video + Integrated Media. As a filmmaker, Barber’s work deal with serious issues in a humorous way, to show audiences how we are all connected. Her first documentary, My Indian Bum, breaks through the superficial way we relate to our bodies, to reveal what really matters. Her work expands First Nation traditional story-telling into a contemporary mode. She recently completed work on Dear Hatetts, a documentary about endometriosis and its effect on relationships. Her Grad film Dear Hatetts has won two awards so far, the Saralee James Memorial Award and the President's Media Award for Best Live Action at Emily Carr University. Barber is now working for the Yukon Government as a Multimedia Producer, for a one-year internship in Whitehorse.
