GIFT
Robin McKenna / Canada / 2018 / English, Italian with English subtitles / 89 '

GIFT is the first feature documentary by filmmaker Robin McKenna. Inspired by Lewis Hyde’s beloved classic The Gift: Creativity and the Artist in the Modern World, GIFT is an intimate exploration of real-life gift economies, interweaving character‐driven stories from around the world. GIFT is a tribute to something that can’t be measured or counted, bought or sold. Exploring the parallels between artists’ work and a gift economy, it is a reflection on the creative process, the reasons we “labour in service of our gifts”, and a celebration of the imagination.
