More about the films:
Boom Breach: Boom Breach was filmed at c̓əw̓χeləməɬ on xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) lands, on the Fraser River shore near Mitchell Island.

Lisa Cay Miller – Film and Music
Ron Ruiten – Audio/video editing
Cmyk: ‘This short animation is a dizzying celebration of sound, colour and movement. Here, multitudes of CMYK symbols, pulled off flaps of cereal boxes and other common printed materials, have been isolated and assembled. Freed from their workaday origins, these objects become moving artwork. Coloured dots pulsate, crosshairs roll and primary shapes dance. The result: an unrestrained riot of colour and energy.’ -NFB
Marv Newland – writer, animator and director
Kunal Sen – animator and editor
Martin Rose – producer
Lisa Cay Miller – composer
Performed by the Bozzini Quartet: Clemens Merkel, Charles-Étienne Marchand, Stéphanie Bozzini and Isabelle Bozzini
