Multiple generations of Indigenous women drum by the water as archival photographs animated ghostly superimpositions through layered exposures. Shot on celluloid and hand processed using flowers in place of chemicals, Tune In offers visuals that are at once abstract and representational.


Cassidy Ritchie and Tiffany Kewageshig are an Anishnaabekwe youth from Saugeen First Nation and members of the young women’s group Ishkiniikwek. They both participated in the 2019 Saugeen Takes on Film workshop, a collaborative youth project who produced Tune In.
