Through stop-motion animation, live footage and text, the wild of the Yukon is personified as an older, wiser lover, coaxing viewers to come live in her extremes, let go of things they thought they once needed, and find the part of themselves that the noise and structures and expectations of the cities have obstructed, hidden and tamed. Directed by Krista Davis and Cari Tangendal. Made in Dawson City.



Filmmaker Bio: Krista Davis

Krista Davis is a visual artist and filmmaker based in Yukon, Canada. Through video, animation, performance and installation, she looks for creative, sometimes fantastical strategies to shift human and non-human relationships towards a more ecologically just world.



Davis’ media art and films have shown at festivals and galleries internationally. In addition to solo work, she is currently involved in a number of queer and ecological collaborations including the Paradise Boys, Hypercosmic Earth and Dirt and Nibi Walks. Before moving north and shifting focus to the land, she led bi-yearly queer music/video/performance/comedy wig-and-costume-heavy mash-up performances, and was a co-founder of OUTeast Queer Film Festival in Halifax, NS. 

 

Davis received her BFA from Nova Scotia College of Art & Design and MFA from Arizona State University.
