DGC@Home: Małni – Towards the Ocean, Towards the Shore (Begins April 16)

A poetic 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.

Critics:

“Critic’s Pick! An essential portrait of contemporary Indigenous life. Refreshingly centers the Native perspective, and beckons audiences onto its wavelength by tapping into something more intuitive, the stuff of dreams.” –Beatrice Loayza,  The New York Times

“Rapturous. Feels like a richly woven ghost story.” — Ela Bittencourt, Hyperallergic

“Stunning. Nothing short of astonishing. One of the most awe-inspiring films I saw.”— Vikram Murthi, Rogerebert.com

“Mr. Hopinka is a member of the Ho-Chunk Nation and descended from the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians. His work, which he aptly calls “ethnopoetic,” is built on that biographical data, but expands outward from it…. It rivals in visual and linguistic beauty any new art I’ve seen in some time.” – Holland Cotter, The New York Times
