Film honours Regina artists Michele Sereda, Lacy Morin-Desjarlais
Women were among 5 people killed in a three-car crash earlier this month
The legacies left by two Regina artists are being honoured on film by the arts community.
Michele Sereda and Lacy Morin-Desjarlais were killed in a three-car crash on Highway 6 on Feb. 10.
Tonight is the world premiere of a short movie, Dancing the Space Inbetween, starring both women. It features a dance collaboration between Sereda and Morin-Desjarlais.
We want to stand united to present their film.- Janine Windolph
Janine Windolph, an editor for the film, was a friend of both women.
"Even though it's talking about a dark chapter in history, it actually says it in a poetic and beautiful way," Windolph explained. "We'll also have an honour song for [Morin-Desjarlais]; we'll have an elder come in prayer. The way it's presented is very much a healing project."
The film will screen tonight at the University of Regina's Research and Innovation Centre at 5:45 p.m. CST.
"We want to stand united to present their film," Windolph said. "It's also a way for us to get that healing process out. There are so many people involved. It's hard not to do it together."
