From Cherry English

Jeff Barnaby

2004, 10:00 minutes, Color, English/Mi'gMaq


From Cherry English is a surrealist Mi’gMaq allegory about the loss of language and identity to the anonymity of an urban wasteland. Traylor, a Mi’gMaq man being pulled between two worlds meets a non-native woman who sends him on a hallucinogenic journey of masochism, and self discovery. The film explores the relationship that Traylor has with his language, culture, and past.
