David Curtis

Writer, director

David is an off-grid dwelling commercial fisher, carpenter and artist who has had the honour and privilege of living in Dawson City, within the Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in traditional territory, Yukon since 1998. David’s work focuses on the associative possibilities between form, subject and meaning, and is predicated on the idea that poetry, passion and humility are not only important to being human, but essential to our survival. Sovereign Soil is David’s first feature documentary and is part of a planned triptych of works exploring the intimacies, paradoxes and cultures of his community’s evolving relationship to its lands, flora and fauna.
