Totem: Return and Renewal, Gil Cardinal, 2007, 25 mins
In his 2003 NFB film Totem: the Return of the G’psgolox Pole (ALFF 2004), filmmaker Gil Cardinal documented the struggle of the Haisla people of British Columbia to recover a traditional mortuary totem pole. This half-hour documentary follows the events of the final journey of the G’psgolox Pole as it returns home to Kitamaat and the Haisla people. This presentation is in honour of ground-breaking filmmaker Gil Cardinal who passed away in November 2015.
