Paper Canoe Projects (Toronto)
in association with The Theatre Centre
Written & Performed by Jani Lauzon
Directed by Franco Boni
Dramaturgy by Franco Boni

Prophecy Fog is a personal story of place and identity. Based on a journey to the Mojave Desert to visit Giant Rock, Prophecy Fog uses text, video, and music to weave a conscious remembering of ancient prophecies, rock teachings and star beings.

Once home to sacred ceremonies, UFO conventions, an airport, and Howard Hughes’ favourite restaurant, Giant Rock now stands covered in graffiti and surrounded by broken bottles. But Giant Rock has stories to share, if we are willing to listen.

The Wairoa Maori Film Festival is a film festival like no other!
Guests are welcomed in a traditional Maori powhiri welcoming ceremony, and can stay at the marae (in the cinema!) or at nearby Morere mineral springs, Mahia beach, or Wairoa township.
We pride ourselves on a laid-back and relaxed energy, a spiritual nourishment both on screen and off. We have a reputation for rich and sincere narratives presented in a gentle and healing marae space. We give voice to the radical, on screen presence to the activist, our audiences feel and resonate with the film makers messages.
