International Film Forum honors Indigenous Peoples Day with film by Sky Hopinka

10 October 2022

Join the International Film Forum Monday, October 10 at  7:00 pm in the Weitz Cinema as we honor Indigenous Peoples Day with the screening of maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore (Sky Hopinka, 2020, US, 82 min.)

“maɬni (pronounced: moth-nee) follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier’s wanderings through each of their worlds as they wonder through and contemplate the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in chinuk wawa, their stories are departures from the Chinookan origin of death myth, with its distant beginning and circular shape.” (Sky Hopinka)
