  Buffalo Calling

Tasha Hubbard

Canada, History/Experimental Animation, 201312 min, HD, ColorNo dialogue

 

Buffalo Calling follows the journey of four buffalo calves, orphaned by the horrific buffalo slaughter in the northern plains grasslands. The buffalo calves and their descendants are brought over the Rocky Mountains in the 1870s to a temporary refuge in the plateau region of the Rockies, assisted by the Salish and Kootenai tribe. After the Dawes Act of 1905, they lose their refugee status and are herded into early 20th century railway cars, to be shipped to the northern parklands of Alberta. But the land in which the calves were born and the spirit of the buffalo continue to call for their return. And after 100 years, the buffalo finally come back to the land of their ancestors. BUFFALO CALLING screened as part of imagineNATIVE in 2013.

Gordo, calvo y bajitoFat, Bald, Short Man

Carlos Osuna

Colombia, Black Comedy/Drama/Animation, 201190 min, HD, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

Antonio Farfán is a middle-aged man who works in a notary's office. He has always believed he is a failure because he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes along almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown out to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up living pretty unexpected situations. With an animation style all its own, playing smartly with depth of field, Gordo, calvo y bajito is an impressive cinematic debut, screening internationally and recently receiving a Special Mention at the Warsaw Film Festival.

The "Gift"

Terril Calder

Canada, Animation, 20112 min, HD, ColorEnglish

The "Gift" interrogates why the European settlers gave the native people blankets with diseases on them, and if they did it on purpose. This issue has been resurrected for debate in an attempt to discredit the use of smallpox blankets as a myth. The history of quite a few tribes was lost during this time because so many people fell sick and died. As a result, the woolen blanket represents all of the broken promises that are interwoven in native history. Using a very minimalist style, this animated short leaves a lasting impression. The "Gift" had its world premiere at imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.
