[Butte]: Unfolds over the course of a day, marking the progression of time at four key points: sunrise, mid-day, late afternoon, and sundown. Filmed in Southern Alberta on the plains and ancestral grounds of the Blood Reserve, the camera instinctively accentuates dancer-choreographer Byron Chief-Moon's deep connection to the land. The film captures images of nature and the connectiveness with the land, undulating waves of wild grass, the slow passage of clouds, pastoral woodland thicket, and streams. The body as landscape is the central image, where the flesh, bone and muscle become synonymous with the land.
Byron Chief-Moon, Grey Horse Rider: Father of three, successful TV actor and artist and proud member of the First Nations two-spirited gay community, Byron Chief-Moon is a fascinating mesh of dynamic personae. But when he dances alone in the forest, the complexity of the real world washes away, and we can see his spiritual self take hold. Interviews combine with mesmerizing footage of his performances to capture the essence of this cutting-edge artist who founded the Coyote Arts Percussive Performance Association. By melding the history and art of his Canadian Blackfoot Confederacy tribe with issues of contemporary life, Chief-Moon's work makes profound statements about identity and tradition.
