Sweep

by Philip Hoffman & van Ingen, Sami

sound / colour

"Sami called and asked me to go north with him and make a film about where his great-grandfather, Robert Flaherty, had been in Fort George. I suggested we stop in Kapuskasing to see the place where my mother's family first settled when they arrived from Europe. Two men, on the road AGAIN, sifting through past worlds where there is everywhere, dusty remnants of the ‘great white father.’ Colliding head on with the passing present we see him in us.” - Phil Hoffman
