Entropy (Kalaallit Nunaat) 

Inuit folklore always centered on community and drew inspiration from the immediate environment - the ice, sea, and land. As a people we lived in proximity to the arctic ice yet what happens now as the ice is disappearing will affect not just the Inuit communities of the far north, but everyone. 

Director: Inuk Jørgensen 

 

MONITO OMERE - Epanae: Nuestro Territorio Waorani (Ecuador)

Today with the arrival of multinational companies, men and women decide to take a fight to protect their life and conserve the environment. 

Director: Carlos Enqueri

He Pounamu Ko Āu (Aotearoa) 

He Pounamu Ko Āu (I am Pounamu) is a kaupapa Māori experimental short film that explores wahine Māori identity. The film unfolds through moving image, pounamu pūrākau (storytelling), mōteatea (sung Māori poetry), and ambient sound. Created for healing and artistically expressing a story of overcoming the adversity of colonisation and the reconnection to indigenous woman's identity. Drawing on maternal whakapapa (genealogy) to celebrate intergenerational wahine talent. 

Director: Tia Barrett 

 

Redlights (Canada) 

An evening out takes a dramatic turn for two Indigenous women, Tina and Amber, when Amber is suddenly taken into police custody. Fearing the worst, Tina tails the cruiser outside city limits and makes a courageous choice to free her friend. 

Director: Eva Thomas
