Steven Davies is a filmmaker and media artist of Snuneymuxw and European descent. His work revolves around cultural and political themes, which reconnect with Indigenous histories and epistemologies and serve as educational tools. Through film, Steven calls attention to underrepresented perspectives and brings a sense of empowerment and pride to those often marginalized. He feels a huge responsibility to the cultural leaders that have mentored and supported him, and the individuals whose voices and images are shared in his work. By referencing Indigenous sovereignty and Indigenous cultural resurgence, his goal is to challenge and disrupt dominant Western perspectives and relationships to land and place. Steven’s work has been screened locally, nationally and internationally at a number of film festivals and has been installed in galleries across Canada.
