Amanda Strong and Bracken Hanuse Corlett (both NSI IndigiDocs) are the filmmakers behind one of five films addressing decolonization in a provocative new CBC series.

Their film Flood (pictured) will be included in the series, entitled Keep Calm and Decolonize.

Singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie coined the phrase in early 2017 at the outset of the Canada 150 hoopla that offended many Indigenous people. Jesse Wente produced the series.

Flood is an animation showing a young woman in a canoe paddling into a stream of paper flowing from the desk of a cramped figure in a judge’s wig. It’s a classroom daydream rendered in mysterious, reverential stop-motion tableaux.

Keep Calm and Decolonize is available at cbc.ca/watch on November 27 and airs on CBC TV on December 3 at 3 p.m. (3:30 p.m. NT).
