GIFT is Robin’s first feature documentary.  Currently, she is directing a short film with the National Film Board for the Governor General’s Awards for the Performing Arts – and finishing Thanadoula, a short animated documentary fairytale about a girl’s search for her older sister and the “crow magic” connecting them.
