Stellar is set in Northern Ontario where a meteorite has crashed, triggering a chain of catastrophic events and natural disasters. Two lovers transcend the traumas calmly as they take shelter in a dive bar amid the winds, floods, and fires raging just outside the front window. The feature from producer-writer-director Darlene Naponse (Anishinaabe) explores human notions of connections between oneself, other people, and Mother Earth herself.

Stellar had its World Premiere at TIFF 2022 and was selected to open the 2022 imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival.
