angry and humorous racial mix on Manitoulin Island
While the print of the film I saw was somewhat whitewashed and did not reveal the bright richness of color that dominates the landscape on Ontario's Manitoulin Island,it does reveal the difficulty of mixed races, even within one's own racial heritage, using multiple layers of memory, the subconscious, and the spirit world to project various possibilities of how the bitterness and incredible hostility from others reaches into our own spirit and must be expelled. Of interest to me was the use of humor throughout the tragedy, and the uncredited use of First Nation art, images that appear to be Norval Morriseau - also, one of the sisters is Renae Morriseau - any relation?
