Memory Trap: The Herd that Wouldn’t Disappear
Dir. Allan Code, Yukon, 2015, 50 min
Fresh from its premiere at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, Whitehorse-filmmaker Allan Code’s MEMORY TRAP: The Herd that Wouldn’t Disappear follows the Forty Mile Caribou Herd for a year through remote wilderness of North Yukon and Alaska, telling their story of survival and how traditional knowledge and science saved the herd from near extinction.
Director Allan Code in attendance.
Dir. Chantal Rondeau, Yukon, 2015, 10 min
First Nations artist and embroidery expert, Karen Nicloux, was born and raised in Mayo and took up the art of sewing and embroidery at an early age from watching her mother. Karen’s life was forever altered at 16 when a so-called friend offered her cocaine when she complained of a headache. Released takes us into Karen’s life as she rediscovers her gift for sewing to regain her focus and figure out how to stay clean. Karen’s embroidery – it represents peace, purpose and acceptance, one day at a time.
This ALFF Industry affiliated screening highlights the screen production funding partnership between Northwestel Community TV, Yukon Film & Sound Commission and Canada Media Fund and will include opening remarks by representatives from these organisations.
