MY NAME IS NOT AMY (in development)
We've been telling ourselves the wrong stories. About who we are, what we're connected to, what we're made of, where we came from. And it's causing enormous harm— to ourselves, each other, and the Earth.
What started as a very personal film project about the narrative correction of my own life has extended far beyond me and my adoption story alone. I'm connecting with other truth keepers who are articulating the real story of humanity, and an Indigenous future. Many are Native, but not all. Each knows intimately the work of decolonizing themselves. Some are human, some are not. They have seen the world through this lens for much longer than I have. Jason and I are simply showing up and listening, and creating our art to process it all.
