Maamawi Film Poster

Maamawi

Animation |  5m

Directed by Jonathan Thunder

This new film is a short experimental vignette created using CG imagery and sound design. Maamawi is the Ojibwe word that means “together”. The film explores connections between a young man and unfamiliar visitors from a not so long ago time. The content reflects a link between our current era and the impact of the 1956 Indian Relocation act. The story is inspired by my father who’s family was relocated multiple times during his childhood.
