Hand-crafted, stop-motion figures come to life in this dreamlike world inspired by Native stories, in which a confined woman is liberated by grandmother spider while opaque memories are projected in an effort to restore her spirit as life nears its end.

Indigo is a stop motion animation exploring themes of imagination and inner child via dolls and miniatures. Many collaborators helped sculpt the final concept and piece to reflect Indigenous principles of the medicine wheel, stories of grandmother spider mixed with personal experience. These teachings are embedded within the worlds and Indigo’s journey throughout.
