Shifting Landscapes

Above: Collaged sketch for the film

Shifting Landscapes (5-minute, work-in-progress) is an animated film that explores how differing cultures choose to alter the Vermont landscape as expressions of their beliefs.  This non-verbal poetic film traces multiple social histories of the maple tree Рfrom current touristic endeavors, to Abenaki traditions, to Romantic poets Рas intertwined relationships of power, control, and meaning.  Anticipated release in December 2017.
