*I will acknowledge here the problematic whiteness of this video. When I began making it I thought it was about me, that conceit is a weakness of the film.*

*I would also like to acknowledge that this film was conceived, edited and performed on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations.*

*I cannot in good conscience publish works on violence against women in Canada without acknowledging the missing and murdered First Nations women. https://nwac.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/05/Fact_Sheet_Missing_and_Murdered_Aboriginal_Women_and_Girls *
