I was surprised and very thankful. I never had the opportunity to hear the voice of people in Canada speaking about my work. Thank you very much to all of you.

I cried, it just made everything real, my film had a screening at the BFI last year, and I hid my head in my mothers shoulder, because I was just so anxious about people watching it was all a bit much for me, and I left quite quickly after the screening, as I was a little to anxious, so it was good to face up to a fear of mine and actually hear peoples opinions on it, from the safety of my home.

Ritual follows four dancers as they rehearse in the studio. Their preparation is prayer-like, full of repetition, meditation, ecstasy, and reflection, reinforcing the sacredness of daily practice.
Set to poetry by Black and Jewish spoken word artist Aaron Samuels, Ritual’s text reflects on his family memories of Passover, an ancient Jewish tradition that celebrates freedom from oppression. Ritual examines the tenacity and resilience that motivates us to keep our traditions and honor our histories, no matter our heritage or creed.
An unseen protagonist is drawn to an enigmatic searchlight piercing the darkness in a lonely vigil for lost souls at sea.

Mimesis is an obsessive art project I’ve worked on for 3 years, building models and sets, traveling around Western US states including my home state of Montana with a truck full of props as well as creating makeshift sets at home. Nothing in the film is digital, all the visuals are analog, created using miniatures, home-made machines, smoke and mirrors. Plato and Aristotle saw in mimesis the representation of nature. I wanted to depict other beings harnessing these forces to create a super nature while no one seems to notice.
