Empire Valley

Ryan Ermacora

Canada / 2018 / 13' / Italian premiere



The film contemplates cinema’s ability to transmit a confluence of times through landscape, whether that time be geological, personal or political. Situated within Tsilhqot'in territory in central British Columbia, the film addresses the way in which history is both remembered and forgotten. An attempt to grapple with the aesthetics imposed on the landscape by agricultural practices, erosion, and the traces of colonial ideologies.
