Set in the majestic landscapes of the sovereign Indigenous territories of Canada’s west coast, In the Garden of Forking Paths was entirely filmed solo by children. Handing a tiny spherical camera from one to another and transforming it into an instrument to explore wondrous parallel universes, the children-filmmakers lead us on a mesmerizing adventure of perception. Their ingenuity evokes the ideal of an eye unconstrained by habits of perspective, and the utopia of a cinema freed from technology through technology itself. Thanks to a lyrical intertwining of ethnography, play and reverie, the film becomes a touching invitation to reimagine entanglements among humans, nonhumans, and the world surrounding them.
