The Uprooted:
Shorts Program I

“You cannot know where you are going unless you acknowledge where you’ve
come from.” This ancient teaching speaks to themes present in this
collection of short works from filmmakers exploring loss and
disconnection. A tribute to the perseverant drifters among and within us
who are courageously redefining what it means to be Indigenous today.
