This collaborative video shot at a glacial lake in the Rocky Mountains, features a "dialogue" between two women friends who explore their relationship to the natural environment as influenced by their different cultural backgrounds. Through the layering of meditative images of canoeing, this video evokes a subtle examination of race, gender and privilege: how do we enter into this landscape, as residents, immigrants tourists and adventurers.
