Augusta

Top of page

This film is the portrait of an eighty-eight-year-old woman who lives alone in a log cabin without running water or electricity. Augusta is a non-status Shuswap Indian living in the Williams Lake area of British Columbia. She recalls past times, but lives very much in the present. Self-sufficient, dedicated to her people, she spreads warmth wherever she moves, with her songs, her harmonica and her soft-voiced comments.(Award: San Francisco.)
