NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK!
A poetic documentary circling the origin of the death myth from the Chinookan people in the Pacific Northwest, MAŁNI – TOWARDS THE OCEAN, TOWARDS THE SHORE follows two people as they wander through their surrounding nature, the spirit world, and something much deeper inside. Hopinka takes us on a journey through language and belief. We follow Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier on their separate paths, contemplating their afterlife, rebirth, and death. A beautiful lesson subtly arises about humanity’s place on this and other worlds, deceptively small and profoundly deep.
In English and Chinuk Wawa with English subtitles.
Steve Holmgren, Sky Hopinka
