COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Pas de résumé français disponible

Using a two channel projection Shikaakwa (the indigenous word for Chicago) is an elegy for the landscape and people of Chicago. The film is a meditation on the physical spaces that hold us up and hold us back and the human beings that navigate them. One channel explores the recovery of Ondelee Perteet, who was shot and paralyzed at the age of 14 and the other depicts the life of a big city. Shikaakwa portrays the despair, movement, progress, and stillness of Chicago’s inhabitants.
