I watched this as part of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival Shorts Program. 

Very beautiful, loved the masks at the end

There's a world of difference between "NFTS Presents" and "NFTs Presents"

With two short films to date, Alison Rich is showing herself to be quite the talent behind the camera. Both concepts of her first two films work quite well as shorts but I would certainly love to see what she can do with a feature film. It's only a matter of time before Rich stars tearing it up as a feature filmmaker. I certainly can't wait to see what she writes and directs next. Review.

Having such shitty subtitles for indigenous language after Sundance’s land acknowledgement was such a letdown but of course I loved this.
