Snare

Directed by Lisa Jackson
Canada, 2013 (video art, 4 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"Spare and visually arresting, with a haunting soundtrack, Snare is a performance-based piece that captures the brutality of violence against Aboriginal women, as well as the possibility of healing and grace. Canada has been condemned by Amnesty International for the high level of violence against Native women, and there has been an inquiry into the murdered and missing women in British Columbia, Canada. Most recently, the UN called for an investigation into the violence against Indigenous women in Canada. Snare is an artistic response to this real-life issue, bringing the experience of women to the forefront, as well as the possibility of healing, grace and greater understanding."
