ALT | International Shorts

New Mexico, July 1945. In this land, the paths of an old farmer and a young Navajo boy cross, just prior to a world-changing event. This visual narrative piece features beautiful imagery and composition by Vancouver’s Todd Duym, which won him the award for Best Cinematography in a Short Drama at the Leo Awards in early June. It’s a poetic, silent contemplation of the beautiful landscapes and a memorable day long ago, recalled by the boy, now an old man who knows the implications of what he witnessed that morning. This is a powerful indictment of American military nuclear testing and its effects on Native Americans.
