Christmas at Moose Factory

Top of page

This short animation by acclaimed Abenaki filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin creates a charming study of life at Christmas time in Moose Factory, an old settlement mainly composed of Indigenous families on the shore of James Bay. Composed entirely of children's crayon drawings and narrated by a little girl, the film illustrates incidents big and small with childish candor, conveying to the viewer a strong sense of being there.
