Malni—Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore

30 September 2021 | 7:30 pm


Malni—Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore

USA, 2020. Directed by Sky Hopinka. 80 min. NR

A poetic, experimental debut feature 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. At its center are Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier, who take separate paths contemplating their afterlife, rebirth, and death. Probing questions about humanity’s place on earth and other worlds, Sky Hopinka’s film will have audiences thinking (and dreaming) about it long after. Presented in English and Chinook jargon, with subtitles.

“Critic’s Pick! An essential portrait of contemporary Indigenous life. Beckons audiences onto its wavelength by tapping into something more intuitive, the stuff of dreams.” — Beatrice Loayza, The New York Times

“Truly radical, not because of its politics or its impressions of the world at large, but because it presents something evocative, unique, and un-replicable in its personal voice.”  – Soham Gadre, Film Inquiry
