Hailing from Dawson City, Yukon, Dan Sokolowski (Sok Cinema), has produced over 24 shorts, one feature, and is the producer of the Dawson City International Short Film Festival. Dan will present a program of nine short works that uniquely blend animation and documentary. Films to be screened include: Lightyear (2001), in which still images representing 12 moon cycles are painted upon and edited together in a rhythmic fashion; Land of the Pines (2006), which investigates all things pine—trees and otherwise; Stone Bruise (2007), which takes the viewer on a journey up the legendary Dempster Highway in Yukon territory in an ever-changing mosaic of landscape, form, and processes; and Pond (2018), which tells the life of a pond over the course of one year through photographs and paint. Sponsored in part by the Canada Council. Post-screening conversation with Sokolowski.
