Screening as part of Indictment

One of the first films to come out of Standing Rock, Hopinka offers a quiet but potent contemplation that he describes as both an incomplete and imperfect portrait of reflections from the camp. Told through the memories and impressions of Terry Running Wild and Cleo Keahna, who look back as they hope for what will become.


Sky Hopinka’s (Ho-Chunk) work centres around personal positions of homeland and landscape, designs of language and facets of culture contained within, and the play between the accessibility of the known and the unknowable. Some of his works include Visions of an Island (2016) and Jáaji Approx. (2015) which both screened at imagineNATIVE.
