Inspired by the work of my maternal grandfather, Pudlo Pudlat, this stop-motion short tells the story of a male owl, driven by hunger, as he goes in search of food in a late-spring snowstorm – but in his pursuit he may have met his match.

Writer/director/producer: Mosha Folger

I could not have completed the project without the help of Karen, my partner in all things.

The wonderful viola soundtrack was composed and performed by Anishinaabe musician Melody McKiver.
