Project Description:

This film holds the internal thoughts and emotions that I was experiencing, as a Mom, while trying to create positive experiences for my child throughout the pandemic. It illustrates how by looking at the world through my daughter’s innocent eyes I was able to break free from living in survival mode and move toward minobimaadziwin (living a good life).
