Living in Toronto and seeking reconnection with his Métis roots, Trevor Cameron sets out on a cross-country road trip to the homelands
Living in Toronto and seeking reconnection with his Métis roots, Trevor Cameron sets out on a cross-country road trip to the homelands of Gabriel Dumont, hero and leader of the 1885 Métis uprising. In a ramshackle van painted with Métis iconography, Cameron blends animation, personal narrative and historical facts visiting the places and people who can offer profound insight into Dumont. While textbooks may offer us a glimpse of who this important figure was, Shadow of Dumont explores Gabriel Dumont through kinship, humour, and a deep connection to the landscape.
