Transformations: Terril Calder’s Animated Worlds: The Lodge

Sat, May 12 / 7 pm
Directed by Terril Calder
2014, Canada, 73 min

Introduced by Terril Calder.

One of the most important animation artists in Canada, Terril Calder is a hugely talented Métis artist and stop motion animator now based in Toronto. Her films have won awards and played at film festivals around the world from Sundance to imagineNATIVE and Berlin. She is in Winnipeg this weekend to give a stop motion animation workshop and a screening of her shorts and feature, The Lodge.

The Lodge is a stop-frame animated fairy tale set in the Canadian wild. War bride, Pearl Simpson, born in the slums of England, yearns to rise up from the Animals that co-inhabit her new world to reign as their Queen. However the Manitous have something else in mind. The Lodge weaves together an English fairy tale, “The (Original) Three Bears” and the Anishinaabe story of the Dandelion. The lead character Pearl Simpson was inspired by Canada’s “Little Emperor”, George Simpson (1787-1860) as both longed for power and control. Unfortunately their damaged perspective needlessly brought suffering to many Indigenous people around them.
