BIIDAABAN: FIRST LIGHT

STORYSCAPES 7 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE BIIDAABAN: FIRST LIGHT
The town square has flooded, buildings and subways have merged with local flora, and indigenous languages and knowledge are thriving in a radically different future Toronto. Here, in the future, people have found a connection to the past. As a work of indigenous futurism, Biidaaban explores how the languages of native peoples can provide a framework for understanding our place in the world and open up a space for new imaginings of the future.
