I Won’t Stand For It
Miyawata is a 15-year old Indigenous activist from Winnipeg, Canada, who never hesitates speak up for what she believes in. To protest the injustices that her people have faced throughout the history of Canada, she refuses to stand for the National Anthem. She’s on a mission to help Indigenous voices be heard and included. And she’s the very first organizer of school strikes for the climate in her hometown. The climate movement in Winnipeg had big momentum… until COVID hit. Now that the end of the pandemic is in sight, can she get the movement going again?
When seagulls suddenly attack, one small herring finds itself stranded in a tidal pool. Only by joining forces with new friends can they hope to defend themselves against the hungry seagull.
Spuffies have a serious thing for jubees. When they’ve eaten the very last delicious fruit and hunger is about to strike, they head to the jubee grove, through the murky forest.

Inbetweening Beings uses the increments of animation to examine ecology in the Anthropocene. Experimenting with frame-by-frame filmmaking, installation, and the materiality of landscape, a variety of living systems are projected, asking where and how humans fit in. Referencing specific locations and relations, the installation connects human and more-than-human life with light and shadow, inviting reflection and implication. Focusing on urban and human-disturbed landscapes, Inbetweening Beings suggests a distinctly anthropogenic “nature” – jumbled, entangled, polluted, and resilient.
