Ecology of Being Film

Happy to publicly release Melissa Hui’s Ecology of Being film, directed by Nicola Hawkins with poetry by Shannon Webb-Campbell. This film was a direct result of Covid-19 restrictions and grew into a family affair with the involvement of our actor daughter Clara and our son Sasha who captured the outdoor footage. The film has gone on to win Best Experimental Short and Best Original Score at the Los Angeles 2020 IndieX Film Fest, was a Semi-finalist at the 2020 Montreal Independent Film Festival, was selected for London Lift-Off Film Festival, and nominated in the 2021 London Eco Film Festival.

Special heartfelt thanks to Chelsi Madonna, Pete Stanbridge, Steve Lilly, the Canada Council, Arts NL, and Music NL for making this all possible.
