Traditional Northwestern Indigenous spiritual images combine with cutting-edge computer animation in this surreal story about the power of tradition. Three urban Indigenous teens are whisked away to an imaginary land by a magical raven. Here, the young people meet a totem pole whose characters (a raven, a frog and a bear) come to life, becoming their teachers, guides and friends--demonstrating their significance to Northwest First Nation cultures and allowing the teens to understand the strength of their own traditions. Featuring a special interview segment with J. Bradley Hunt, the celebrated Heiltsuk artist on whose work the computer-animated characters in Totem Talk are based.
