In-person: Q&A with filmmaker Fox Maxy.
Fox Maxy's debut feature film is an explosive and expansive collage of images and sounds that has been shaped over the past decade. Through a mix of documentary footage, television clips, animation and other formats, Maxy rhythmically explores themes of self, friendship and trauma that are connected by a pulsating sound, keeping the viewer at the edge of their seat. The film presents a deeply personal and intimate perspective of experimental Indigenous filmmaking, using a non-linear approach to storytelling and an innovative use of layering and repetition of images and sounds. Gush is a unique viewing experience that evokes a range of emotions and encourages viewers to think critically and partake in a radical joy amidst the complexities of life.
