Captured in 360, Ri’ken:’a (my younger brother) is an autobiographical short detailing a day in the life of two siblings in Toronto during a COVID-19 lockdown. Through storytelling, movement, and tenderness, Mel and Matt break from the monotony and isolation of quarantine—if only for a short time.
Based in Tkaronto, Melissa Johns is a multimedia visual artist and educator from a mixed Mohawk (Turtle Clan) and French Canadian background. Melissa’s visual practice manifests at the convergence of contemporary media, using interdisciplinary methods to collect, preserve, and transform fragments of the stories around her.
