MR Festival of BC Film - Maker of Monsters: The Extraordinary Life of Beau Dick

Saturday, March 23, 2019

2017 | Documentary Directors: Natalie Boll, LaTiesha Fazakas Starring: Bruce Alfred, Wayne Alfred, Eric Angus Synopsis: Maker of Monsters gives an intimate look into the life of one of Canada’s greatest artists. Beau Dick worked within an ancient tradition and rose to the ranks of international success within the white cube world of contemporary art while never forgetting his roots. This film strives to capture the essence of Beau Dick and his mysterious enigma as an artist who symbolized Canada’s history with the First Nations and the ethical dilemmas faced in reconciling with that colonialist history. Beau was able to use his celebrity to call attention to the injustices done to his people and the environment.
