Blue and Red (Zhou Tao, 2014, China, 25 min, Digital)
The Wordly Cave [Fán Dòng] (Zhou Tao, 2017, China, 48 min, Digital)
Adam Khalil and Zack Khalil’s INAATE/SE/ [it shines a certain way. to a certain place./it flies. falls./] re-imagines an ancient Ojibway story, the Seven Fires Prophecy, which both predates and predicts first contact with Europeans. A kaleidoscopic experience blending documentary, narrative, and experimental forms, INAATE/SE/ transcends linear colonized history to explore how the prophecy resonates through the generations in their indigenous community within Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. With acute geographic specificity, and grand historical scope, the film fixes its lens between the sacred and the profane to pry open the construction of contemporary indigenous identity.
