The film was produced during Saugeen Takes on Film, a Film Farm and Fabulous Festival of Film workshop with artists, storytellers, knowledge keepers, and youth from the community. The workshop was held in collaboration with Saugeen First Nation Employment and Training Centre, and funded by the Ontario Arts Council and SSHRC through Archive/Counter Archive.
The kids are our future. Growing up in a world so different and full of technology our kids have lost sight of who they are. Parents are battling addictions. Many grandparents and communities are sick. We’re close to losing our way of life - a way of life so beautiful and so pure that if they were to step into this way, I know they will never be alone. Tune In is about incorporating our way of life to the kids’ lives. Technology. And Tradition. Showing them a way that they can turn to. Breaking the cycle. Understanding that they are scared. They are lost too; they just don’t know it. Their culture will always be a good way to turn to.
Archival photographs animate ghostly superimpositions through layered exposures. Shot on celluloid and hand processed using flowers in place of chemicals, Tune In offers visuals that are at once abstract and representational.
