A Northern Portrait

(documentation from 2012) 28 minutes

A Northern Portrait is an immersive, live expanded cinema performance using nine 16mm projectors.  It embodies the need to explore non-hierarchical structures in film and its hybrid perspective serves as a meeting point between colonial and indigenous visions, opening a potential space of decolonization.
