the boy who died  (2007)

Impressions of Beauval, Saskatchewan during a day off while shooting a documentary film for Gail Maurice about the dreams of aboriginal youth at different latitudes in Canada. The images were shot after hearing that one the subjects we had followed for a week had been in a devastating skidoo accident. She managed to survive despite the hours of exposure to the arctic winter night before she was rescued. Her friend who was driving did not.
