Summary:
A documentary on the making of Shumka’s Ancestors and Elders which follows the production Co-Directors: Indigenous theatre artist Barry Bilinsky and Shumka choreographer and dancer Joseph Hoffman. The documentary focuses on the artists’ creative process as they navigate the difficulties of uniting their respective cultural stories, while dancing around 150 years of cultural baggage. What story should we tell? How is each of our cultures portrayed? How do we depict the struggles that each of our peoples encountered? All questions considered as the journey of the creative process became bigger than the work itself. Various behind-the-scenes aspects of Ancestors and Elders are examined including costuming, music, and production - intertwined with elements of the stage show - to tell the story of the creation of this ground-breaking production.
