I was privileged and honoured to attend a panel at the ImagiNATIVE Digital & Media Arts Festival. One film that screened there was Kayak to Klemtu, written and directed by Zoe Hopkins and starring Ta’Kaiya Blaney, Sonja Bennett and Lorne Cardinal. Shot on location just outside of Bella Bella, BC, it tells the story of a young indigenous girl trying to stop an oil spill. I had the chance to speak with Hopkins, Blaney and Cardinal regarding the film.
Ornament & Crime are a two-piece garage band from Vancouver. Their new album is Unbuilt, available now. I spoke with the duo as they passed through Toronto.
