This experimental video is for "Breathwatersoundcannon," a musical piece composed and produced by Iddo Aharony, and performed by flutist Shanna Pranaitis. The video merges images of the natural and personal, including a performance by Colorado College theatre professor Mónica Sánchez.

The creation of this piece was inspired by the poetry of an Oglala Lakota poet, writer, feminist, artist, and activist Layli Long Soldier, and specifically by her poem “Resolution 2” which is woven into the fabric of the piece in different ways, including through Long Soldier’s own recorded voice. The poem was one of Long Soldier's responds to the Congressional Resolution of Apology to Native Americans, signed into law by President Barack Obama on 19 December 2009.
