US PREMIERE - with Director/Producer Robin Siobhan McKenna, and special guests John Law, Marina Gorbis, Holly Million, and Michelle Lessans ("Smallfry")
Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved book, "The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World," GIFT is a richly cinematic film exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy. Interweaving the stories of a young Kwak’wakwala indigenous man undertaking preparations for a potlatch, an Italian living museum occupied by migrant families, a bumblebee art car at Burning Man, and artist Lee Mingwei sharing the "transformative gift” of song, the film is a tribute to something that can’t be measured, counted, bought or sold.
