In Production

An experimental doc that tells the story of dispossessed Indigenous people in Canada


An experimental film with rich visual/soundscapes and very little narrative. “a spiritual land claim” tells the story of many dispossessed Indigenous people affected by the external forces of colonization (i.e. inter-generational residential school trauma, lateral violence, white foster homes and addictions).

Dorothy Christian pushes film forms by incorporating elements such as drama, documentary and poetic prose in her experimental work. Her video and documentary work has screened regionally, nationally and internationally in communities, film festivals, conferences and exhibitions. She is in graduate studies at Simon Fraser University’s School of Communication.
