Shane participated in the annual Native Forum at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and was recognized as the first Sundance Institute | Native Arts and Cultures Foundation Fellow.
His project, Mino Bimaadiziwin, follows Jim Asiginaak, a young ttransgender Ojibwe man, who has lost all connection to his Native culture until he has a chance meeting with a mysterious Anishinaabe woman, Bangishimogikwe.
After reconnecting with his culture through this young Ojibwe woman he must choose between the comfort of city living or Mino Bimaadiziwin, the path to the good life.
