Synopsis

In honor of his father, Stephen continues the production of traditional baskets. He thus finds peace in his studio, in connection with the man who taught him the work.

Our take

Heather Condo’s eloquently simple short film continues our collaboration with Sundance Institute’s Indigenous Program. Its documentation of the transformation by a member of the Mi’kmaq tribe of a white ash tree into a woven basket speaks for the continuity of history through material and skill.
