Haida filmmaker Marianne Jones returns to her roots and continues the exploration of Haida culture and art from an inside perspective in this series that she has written and directed with Jeff Bear. This second series of Ravens and Eagles: Haida Art includes two longer works that combine two episodes-one of them celebrates the genius of Charles Edenshaw, the most prolific Haida artist to have ever lived; the other follows the historic blockade of logging on Lyell Island by Haida elders from the perspective of those who participated. Repatriation is explored in two separate episodes, and the final episode seeks to further define Haida art in form, process and in its connection to spirituality, land and culture.
