Future Ancestral Technologies - We Live

'We Live' is both an entry log from a time/space jump and documentation of a performative land-based action. Wearing futuristic regalia the figures use their physical presence to pledge accountability to the land and waters affected by resource extraction and industry. This video illustrates how FAT approaches Indigenous futurism, blending media, place, storytelling and documentation of a living practice. As a short film, it communicates the ethos of Future Ancestral Technologies while evidencing the live actions that the work requires.

Art direction, regalia design/construction, poetry and sound composition: Cannupa Hanska Luger
