Experiencing Interruptions?


Prayers for peace. This video was filmed to go with a song about racist contamination of the political process in Canada. that affected my life. I added 6 pounds of fat on me buying sweets, instead of purchasing a space heater since the heat in my apartment would not work until the landlord fixed it, which would last for very cold months each year until recently, in the winter in the North of America. The film is an animation based on a film clip of me feinting a punch at a small swig bag, that was a practice that eventually assisted me to be able to recall that I had nice and good family early in my life in the movie industry who had made many martial arts entertainment films. I was taken from them and sent to Kamloops as part of a negative and unfair and illegal scheme. Prayers for peace. Prayers to thank God for all Health and all just Power, power of God the Creator. This film is also about dance, both mental and physical to express anguish as well as hope and also thankfulness. Prayers for peace. Since beginning to work on this film I also realize it is about recovery from the trauma of being essentially kidnapped and held at the Kamloops residential school by men dressed as priests who had confused the concept of faith with thier own concept of authority that really should not have been present in any school whatsoever. I have been recovering form memory loss about many aspects of my life not only trauma. For many years I painted on canvas instead of making films as my primary art. Moving from canvas to camera changed my frame since when I painted with usually oil paints, I held the canvas as I painted and used vertical shaped canvas with painted fabric stretched over vertical frames and prepared with white paint as the canvas. I made hundreds of paintings very carefully over about ten years. then, I began to acquire computer and camera to work with and began to remember my past and I had been involved in filmmaking since early childhood, even before the Kamloops school experience. I forgot who I was. filmmaking helped me to develop ideas of sequencing and to connect, working endless hours with footage I had filmed and film editors and I worked alone so my memory refreshed. I made a Google Youtube Channel in 2015 and made a film series and that helped me to recover. I began to study courses again with Edx and eventually began to gain diplomas with high grades in both science and arts topics.
