BEMIDI — Watermark Art Center will present the short documentary, "A Place on the Edge of Breath," at 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, at the Rail River Folk School.
Shaawan Francis Keahna, a producer of the documentary, has arranged to screen the film for the Bemidji community and will be joined by co-producer Ava Aodha for a discussion following the screening.
The 29-minute long documentary is described as "a duet of the intersecting lives of Ava and Francis over the course of a year, as their relationship evolves with the seasons, from lovers to friends, family, and finally, collaborators," a release said.
"Rejecting the socialization of gender norms from their childhood, they forge a new path towards adulthood, sharing moments of healing together on their journey to a place called home."
Keahna, a cross-disciplinary artist and musician, currently has additional video work on display in Watermark's Miikanan Gallery in a joint exhibit with emerging collage artist Joan Kauppi entitled "Aanikoosijiaade — It is Linked."
