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.

    Mosha Folger draws a narrative arc with spoken word and song; from his Inuit ancestors hunting seals to leaving his Arctic home to the glimmer of hope he sees for the future of his people.
