What we achieve can be realized through what is imagined. A science classroom becomes the catalyst for students imagining their dreams.

We are a group of first time filmmakers from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and only had a 5 day workshop to bring an idea to screen. Day 1, we discovered our common belief in the power of daydreaming to help imagine and work towards our goals. We wanted to give these dreams some life, while acknowledging our Blackfeet heritage, which lead to the title Aisitsimstā meaning Imagination.
