The Pool, The Desert
Cinematheque, 100 Arthur Street, Sunday, October 6, @ 2PM
A water spirit; an omnipresent narration through salt flats; welcome to the Sunday oasis. Two mid-length films soaking in contemporary folklore offer powerful visions of the Haitian massifs and Chilean Altiplano salares. Echoes of Zora Neale Hurston’s ethnographic approach to subjectivity resound as solitary quests unfold in a present marked by the living fables of ancestors. The artists featured here move between orality and silence, embracing the elemental and crafting rich evocations of place in their storytelling.
This program has been graciously sponsored by the University of Manitoba Institute for the Humanities, and the WNDX Festival is grateful for their support.

A restless daughter meets a spirit-fish who gives her pure water. But as her family devours the delicious water, they soon begin to suspect more than the origins of its taste. A retelling of a folktale told through a family of nonactors with three generations interpreting the roles.
