ALMOST FORGOT MY BONES (2004)
directed by KATRIN BOWEN text/performance by TANYA EVANSON
from the album INVISIBLE WORLD (2004)
We define ourselves through various means - geography, language, profession - no matter how satisfied we are within these boundaries, when one moves from a place and settles in another, there is always a period of re-examination.In this videopoem, the narrator must learn that we are all reflections of each other and that what we really seek in others is a mirror of ourselves: a pure heart that goes beyond the colour of skin. Once the narrator is awakened, she finds pride in her cultural heritage and her community. Thanks to a film grant from the Canada Council for the Arts, this award-winning short film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 15, 2004 at the Short Film Corner and has been shown at festivals in Canada, U.S. and Mexico.
