Amanda Strong, How to Steal a Canoe (Film Still)

Amanda Strong

Biidaaban and How To Steal A Canoe

Biidaaban (The Dawn Comes) is Amanda Strong’s latest stop-motion animation film, in which colonial ideas of ownership clash with ancestral practices of making syrup, as Biidaaban collaborates with ghost animals and Sabe, a 10,000 year-old shape shifter. Biidaaban is shown alongside How To Steal A Canoe, a haunting film that centres around restoring a birch bark canoe to its place on the water from a dark and frightening museum, acknowledging the life and desire of objects. The scripts for both films are adapted from the works of Nishnaabeg author Leanne Betasamosake Simpson.
