KCFF is thrilled to present this program of three extraordinary animated works by Michif filmmaker and interdisciplinary artist Amanda Strong, a guest of the festival at KCFF18. This showcase includes her newest work: SPIRIT BEAR & CHILDREN MAKE HISTORY, a visually inventive and highly engaging adaptation of Dr. Cindy Blackstock’s books for young readers. Like Blackstock’s much-loved stories about Spirit Bear, Strong’s 28-minute stop-motion animation introduces a new generation of changemakers to the themes of human rights, equity and reconciliation. Completing the program are HOW TO STEAL A CANOE and MIA’, two more demonstrations of Strong’s artistry and ingenuity, as well as her commitment to developing bold new forms of Indigenous screen storytelling.
