Little Thunder

This animated short, inspired by the Mi'kmaq legend, The Stone Canoe explores aboriginal humour. We follow Little Thunder as he reluctantly leaves his family and sets out on a cross-country canoe trip to become a man.


Little Thunder was recently the recipient of the Best Animated Film at the 2010 First Peoples Festival in Montreal. "For its vivacity, humour and its light, impulsive brushstrokes sketching playful figures, and for the stone canoe carried off like a leaf in the eternal currents of the Mi'kmaq legend this film brings to life..."

The next festival is the Gimli Festival in Manitoba and then it is off to Italy.
