VeRONAka and Rahyne: Identity, Naming, Relationships, and Healing Through Speculative Arts Film Spaces
Queen Kukoyi, Oddside Arts
VeRONAka - is a ten-minute fictional live-action comedy/drama that explores the true story that our Mohawk clan mother gave COVID-19 a Mohawk name so we can be in relationship with the virus, understand why it is here and ask it to leave.
Rahyne - is a ten-minute animated film about an Afro-Indigenous non-binary teen whose identity is united through two water spirits.
Both films were created as companion speculative art spaces to explore intersections between identity, naming relationships and healing. Discussion moderated by Kahstoserakwathe Paulette Moore, EUC PhD student and owner of The Aunties Dandelion media organization.
