Why does Little Red Riding Hood give Jamie nightmares? It's been 15 years, and the girl in the hallway haunts him still. This is a testament to locked doors. A lullaby sung by wolves with duct tape and Polaroids. Not all children make it out of the forest. Some stories children shouldn't hear.

VALERIE BARNHART is an independent animator and visual artist based out of Ottawa, Canada. Her interdisciplinary practice is exploratory in nature but revolves specifically around the dynamics of silence and inaction as a form of violence. 

Valerie earned her BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design as a Visual Arts Major: with a studio specialty in Printmaking, Drawing, and an academic emphasis in Decolonization Politics and Non-Western Art. 

Her art practice made a massive shift into documentary and animation entirely by accident. Valerie taught herself how to animate during the production. Valerie has exhibited in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, and Lima.
