maɬni – towards the ocean, towards the shore

Dir. Sky Hopinka

This film follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier’s through each of their worlds as they contemplate the afterlife, rebirth, and the place in-between. Spoken mostly in chinuk wawa, their stories extend from the Chinookan origin of death myth, with its distant beginning and circular shape.
