The Freshwater Plague (Jake Chirico | Canada | 10 min.)

Apocalyptic invasion or temporary inconvenience? The annual life cycle of the shadfly and its effects on the inhabited shores of North Bay show a civilization in conflict with nature. At once humorous and horrifying, the examination of this localized infestation reflects broader issues of sterilized urban settlements where nature is scheduled and controlled. - Alex Rogalski.
