About Cara

Métis filmmaker Cara Mumford regards film as visual poetry and has been equally inspired by the mythopoetic work of Maya Deren, the enigmatic storytelling of Darren Aronofsky and the cultural narratives of Zacharias Kunuk. Other, less obvious, influences in her work are the paintings of Marc Chagall and the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Chagall’s use of symbolism, bright colours and visual storytelling have always inspired her imagination. And the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle is a manifestation of the observer effect, which refers to the difference that is made to an activity or person simply by the act of being observed.

The common themes that have been emerging in her work are those of empowerment and perceptions of reality. By which she means that if we can simply change the way we perceive our reality, we are then empowered to change our reality. This is something she strongly believes in her life and she looks forward to having the opportunity to explore it further in her film work, in all its forms and genres.
