Director: Shelley Niro

Making its Canadian Premiere, Niagara (Ongniaahra in Mohawk) is film about love and lost that is narrated as the scenes and sounds of the Niagara Falls play in the background. It’s such a simple story and the narrator voice is so soft spoken that it almost gets drowned out by the falls. As the fourth and final preclude to The Grandfather of All Treaties at imagineNative Film Festival 2015, it seems a bit out of place, unlike the other media art, it’s not about advocacy. While it probably would have been better if it was left out, it’s a creative piece that may be interesting on its own. It gets three and half stars out of five.
