ALFF Creator Talk - The Art of Polaris

ALFF Creator Talk – The Art of Polaris

FREE EVENT: Yukon artist and costume designer, Leslie Leong will show and tell about working on the art of the made-in-the-Yukon feature film Polaris.
Working with creatives from Ontario and the Yukon, Leslie and other local artists created wardrobe, props and sets for this dystopian fantasy, which screens at ALFF on Sat Feb 11 at 6 pm.
This is a free event for the public. Wardrobe from the film will be on display.
Leslie Leong is a visual artist focused on recycling and sustainability, living and working in Whitehorse, Yukon. Her practice began in photography and ceramics over 35 years ago and today, she employs a variety of expressive forms often using unorthodox materials, forcing her to adopt non-traditional techniques.
Leslie currently has “Immersion”, an immersive video instillation on display at the Yukon Arts Centre. In 2021, she was the armour builder for the post-apocalyptic film, “Polaris”.
