Another glorious day in Bella Bella.
|The inlet - where sadly a giant tanker goes through every 10 days...|
Today we met up with the 10 filmmakers at the Youth Centre for orientation day: returning alumni Alexa, Astrid & Elle, and newcomers Bella, Keyshawn, Latoya, Nadia, Nate, Sharon & Trinity
We were SO busy I barely took any pictures... but WHAT a day.
We had a 3 giant flip chart pages from brainstorming ideas.
We could work 6 years making movies with this crew!
The filmmakers organically teamed up (or not) by similar idea of which themes to pursue.
|Sharon checks list for ideas of what story to tell|
Astrid & Alexa: this team is considering exploring the life of a friend who went down a dark path but through the connection to his culture has found the light.
Bella, Nate & Trinity: an Anti-Enbridge documentary exploring in particular the fight against tankers in their waters.
Elle & Latoya: a film that traces the affects of Residential School from grandparents, to parents and then right up to their generation.
Keyshawn & Nadia: A documentary about protecting the Heiltsuk culture
Sharon: A film that explores racism, societal opinions & learning from these mistakes
