A Prairie Story

Top of page

Set to a pulsing techno beat, a prairie landscape undergoes a metamorphosis from rural idyll to over-urbanized dystopia. Director Anne Koizumi laments the changing face of her home town, Calgary, in this pointed critique of the bacteria-like spread of suburbia and exurbia.

A Prairie Story was made for Hothouse 3, the NFB’s program for emerging filmmakers, whose central theme was “Air & Home”.
