Moving Roots: Reflections

Thank you for watching the digital production, where we presented four works out of the program that premiered live in June 2022 in Winnipeg. Three of the works complete the second half of the show and one was originally created as a film in 2020. The total length of the online version is 46 minutes. The access to the digital presentation is now closed for public. However, you might be able to see the creation in different film festivals across Canada. We acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for The Arts for funding this show. The money raised from the digital tickets will be used as part of the funding for touring the show across Canada in the future. canadacouncil.ca
