Jáaji Approx

Sky Hopinka
2015, 8’, USA, HD video

Jáaji is a near translation for directly addressing a father in the Hočak language. An approximation, a representation, a resonance: the film traces Sky Hopinka’s relationship with his father, through seen and unseen landscapes, new and traditional songs and affect.
