Looking for a short animation to watch? Check out today's #StaffPick, “The Mountain of SGaana”, a beautifully animated short depicting a Haida tale told to a fisherman by Mousewoman. Directed by Haida animator and illustrator, Christopher Auchter, a graduate of Sheridan College where he studied computer animation.
In The Mountain of SGaana, Haida filmmaker Christopher Auchter spins a magical tale of a young man who is stolen away to the spirit world, and the young woman who rescues him. The film brilliantly combines traditional animation with formal elements of Haida art, and is based on a story inspired by an old Haida fable.
