Take the Wild

English | Canada | 7 min | 2015

Through stop-motion animation, live footage and text, the wild of the Yukon is personified as an older, wiser lover, coaxing viewers to come live in her extremes, let go of things they thought they once needed, and find the part of themselves that the noise and structures and expectations of the cities have obstructed, hidden and tamed. The video's narrative brings together common experiences of both those who have been long-time Yukon residents and those who are experiencing the North for the first time. Directed by Krista Davis and Cari Tangendal. Made in Dawson City.
