  • Kunįkága Remembers Red Banks, Kunįkág...

    Directed by Sky Hopinka • 2014 • United States

    Sky Hopinka traverses the personal memories embedded within the landscape of Red Banks, a precontact Ho-Chunk village site near present-day Green Bay, Wisconsin, that was also where European settler Jean Nicolet made his landing in 1634.

  • wawa

    Directed by Sky Hopinka • 2014 • United States

    What begins as a documentary featuring speakers of chinuk wawa, an Indigenous language from the Pacific Northwest, becomes increasingly tangled as language patterns commingle and ideas of history and cultural identity are transmuted.

  • Jáaji Approx.

    Directed by Sky Hopinka • 2015 • United States

    Sky Hopinka combines audio recordings of his father with increasingly abstract video images of the landscapes they separately traversed. “Jáaji” is a near translation for directly addressing a father in the Hočak language.
