Storyline

'Relocation! Expansion!' takes the Walter Benjamin quote as its basis, "There is no document of civilization which is not at the same time a document of barbarism." 'Relocation! Expansion!' does not show any overt acts of barbarism but instead tries to let that negative side of our history slowly rise to the surface in a format where one would not expect this to occur, which is by showing Manitoba's colonial history and some of its present day aftermath in the form of upbeat tourism propaganda seen through the eyes of a white supremacist lens that denies its colonial legacy. The intended effect is that the film has a more forceful impact of repulsion and moral outrage than from watching some kind of distorted historical reenactment of the 'naked truth.'
