Abstract (English)

"With his first foray into 3D filmmaking, Toronto artist Oliver Husain extends his interest in theatre, dance, puppetry, animation and the spectacle of cinema. Based on the myth of Isla Santa Maria, an island said to have formed from the wreckage of a replica of one of Christopher Columbus’ ships, Husain’s film draws together the violent colonialist legacy of Columbus with developments of perspectival drawing and stereoscopic image making as two histories that reordered the way we see the world. The film’s cast of characters–a dancing conquistador, an oracle appearing as a floating hologram, a group of visitors from another planet, and a flock of Victorian era revellers on a beach–are pulled out of time, into a nonlinear narrative that overlaps histories, truths and fantasies to reimagine possible futures." -- Publisher's website.
