Memory Trap: The Herd that Wouldn't Disappear
Dir. Allan Code, Yukon, 2015, 50 min
Fresh from its premiere at the Banff Mountain Film Festival, Whitehorse-filmmaker Allan Code’s MEMORY TRAP: The Herd that Wouldn’t Disappear follows the Forty Mile Caribou Herd for a year through remote wilderness of North Yukon and Alaska, telling their story of survival and how traditional knowledge and science saved the herd from near extinction.
The Grubstake Remix
Director Daniel Janke, Yukon, 2016, 73 min.
A genre-busting film that is delightful and beyond all strangeness, straddling the worlds of theatre and silent fiction film in a modern interpretation of The Grub-Stake, a 1923 northwoods melodrama by Canadian screen icon Nell Shipman. A young woman named Faith (played on-screen by Shipman and voiced by Sarah Moore) goes north to the Klondike to seek her fortune, only to be deceived and manipulated in a world of men. She escapes into the bush with her ailing father and a half-wit prospector to lead battle against her wrongful suitor and his henchmen. Director Janke leads us on a laugh-filled romp whereby actors and musicians perform in concert with the film, using Shakespearean dialogue.
In English and French, with English subtitles.
