Four Faces of the Moon
An episodic animation exploring the reclamation of language, Nationhood, and peeling back the layers of Canada's colonial history.
Amanda Strong's artistry is rooted in photography, illustration, and media. These elements of her practice extend into her award-winning work that uses complex, beautiful imagery and characters to weave together meaningful short-films. The Indigenous women in her films appear in nonlinear narratives, which Amanda brings to life through the use of animation.
