SIMILKAMEEN CROSSROADS


[ 2013 . Canada ]


Synopsis



Similkameen Crossroads is an interactive photo-documentary by Tyler Hagan that explores the relationship between spirituality and landscape in the lives of the Upper & Lower Similkameen First Nations. Their response to colonial influence and oppression over the past several hundred years is juxtaposed with the story of the filmmaker discovering his Métis heritage, and struggling with the implications of having a shared history with both the colonizers and colonized.
