Walk, Don't Run
At noon today we gather for the fourth of our weekly panel presentations (we are no longer referring to them as "roundtables"). Today's panelists are Leah Decter, Kevin Ei-ichi deForest, Cathy Mattes and Tannis Nielsen. The panel thematic is "How might your art practice embody the original notion of the o k'inādās residency, that of walking on the land?"
In thinking about today's thematic, I went to my computer to see if Nicolaus Roeg's Walkabout (1971) is available online, for free, and saw that it is. The same could not be said of Zacharias Kunuk's Atanarjut: The Fast Runner (2001), which is too bad. Has anyone ever thought to show these films together?
