              This is a 6 minute work in progress of a documentary created with the University of Alaska Southeast, called, "Baskets and Branches." This is a portrait of Haida weaver Delores Churchill, her life as an artist, working with her mother Selina Peratrovich, traveling to archeological sites and collections to study traditional techniques and passing on the art forms to emerging weavers. This film will show Delores as she teaches the art of basket making, including harvesting and preparing spruce roots and other materials. "Branches and Baskets" is infused by Churchill's passion for weaving and basket making, her enthusiasm for understanding culture and history and her strong sense of connection to the natural world. In creating a film about Delores, we will be telling a story about the revitalization of weaving, which in the region where the film is set involves artists throughout Southeast Alaska and part of Canada and Northwestern U.S, as they combine a contemporary eye with methods from long ago.
