Kit, the eager beaver, embarks on an odyssey through four seasons in a Canadian forest where she learns about compassion, failure, survival and community.
DAM! is a film without dialogue, with the original score and sound effects performed live by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, which commissioned the film in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary.
DAM! premiered in 2017 with a week of live performances for over 20,000 children. Kit the beaver has since toured to orchestras across Canada, as well as to over 25 film festivals throughout 14 countries, winning awards and a 2018 Canadian Screen Awards Nomination for Best Animated Short.
DAM! The Story of Kit the Beaver was written & directed by Kjell Boersma, with an original score by Erica Procunier, featuring the art of Julie Flett.
