BIIDAABAN: FIRST LIGHT (2018) [VR]

Canada (MIFF 2018 , Virtual Reality)

Toronto’s town square is flooded. The city’s infrastructure has merged with local flora. In this radically different future, people have found a connection to the past.

Rooted in Indigenous futurism, Biidaaban: First Light asks you to think about your place in history and your role in a possible future. As you move through a highly realistic future Toronto reclaimed by nature, you’ll hear the languages of the place originally known as Tkaronto.
