This film is a reaction to colonialism & quarantine. It's made from multiple perspectives and experiences, pieced together by an indigenous voice. It's nontraditional storytelling. There are various qualities of footage: lo-fi camcorders, iPhone, archival images and screen recordings. The content is based on a question of how to keep our communities safe.
