The Embargo Project is an anthology of five short films by Canadian Indigenous women. The titles and artists include: ROBERTA by Caroline Monnet, SKYWORLD by Zoe Hopkins, BIHTTOŠ (REBEL) by Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, INTEMPERANCE by Lisa Jackson and AVILIAQ (ENTWINED) by Alethea Arnaquq-Baril.
Participating in a collective process, each director created a film under restrictions imposed on them by their peers, to push each artist into new creative territory.
