Robin McKenna · Canada · 2018 · 90 mins · PG
IMDb
Director Robin McKenna will be in attendance! Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic  The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, this a richly cinematic film, interweaving character-driven stories. On the Pacific Northwest Coast, a young indigenous man undertakes the elaborate preparations for a potlatch – to make a name for himself by giving everything away. In Rome, Italy, a factory occupied by migrants is transformed into a living museum, protected by a barricade of art: a model of resistance and an invaluable gift. In the “pirate utopia” of Burning Man, a mutant bumblebee art car distributes honey. Meanwhile, in Auckland, New Zealand, artist Mingwei Lee prepares to launch a “transformative gift” of song.
GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it’s a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labour in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination. 
Cast Marcus Alfred, Wayne Alfred, Giorgio De Finis
