A young man seeks to honour the memory of his late father while navigating a world that he feels is on the verge of an apocalyptic rebirth. As a meditation on Ojibwe ideas around the processes of death and mourning, we are led on a journey into a foreboding unknown.
Lyle Mitchell Corbine, Jr.’s (Ojibwe) short films, Shinaab (2017) and Shinaab, Part II (2018), have screened at the Sundance Film Festival and the Toronto International Film Festival. He was supported at the Sundance Institute Screenwriters and Directors Labs.
