Bright Lights Film Series: ‘maɬni: towards the ocean, towards the shore’

October 27, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - October 28, 2021 @ 7:00 pm EDT

This film follows Sweetwater Sahme and Jordan Mercier’s wanderings through each of their worlds as they  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. Discussion with writer and director Sky Hopinka and a second guest to follow. 

Tickets are FREE and will be available starting at NOON on Wednesday and will be available for viewing until Thursday at 7:00 PM EST. Register for screening at ArtsEmerson. Link to participate in Zoom Webinar discussion on Thursday at 7:00 PM EST HERE.
